Sunday’s mysore practice was … interesting. I felt like I could not wake up even though I had slept sufficient hours the night before. Half way thru the practice, I discovered that I wasn’t even warm. Everything felt super tight. I couldn’t focus. I felt weird. I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t even finish the practice. I felt anxious and frustrated. Is it because I’m used to 1) practicing at night or 2) guided classes? I’m not certain. I hate all the talking that goes on, too. It’s distracting.

Last night’s class was good in that I was able to finish and I wasn’t tighter than usual. However, I worry about skipping so many asanas in order to make the 1.5 hour deadline. Am I harming my practice?

Holding on to Guruji’s words.
