Day 2, Week One: Home Practice

I was surprised, but I really loved the opening sequence of one-minute downward dog poses followed by one minute standing forward bend poses.  This opening sequence was both grounding and inspiring.

Otherwise, I’ve got three words about today’s practice: Too Much Triangle.  And, really, I’m a big fan of triangle pose.  It is both challenging and comforting.  But, I just stopped doing the prescribed number of triangle poses in this practice because they didn’t feel right to me.  I also added a child’s pose into the mix and closed my practice with a chanting session. 

Perhaps, after years of having a regular home practice, it is just impossible to go back to following instructions when the instruction doesn’t make sense for how I feel?  I know that, before I had a home practice I might not have even known how I felt and would probably have blindly followed the pictures and the practice as published.

Please feel free to join me in my 8-week program with Rodney Yee. You can share your own experience by leaving comments on this blog. It’s OK if you start on a different day or we get out of sync. This is going to be fun!
