I just came back from a 2 hour pranayama workshop, so I'm a little tired tonight.
The pranayama workshop was fun, even though it is all pretty abstract at the moment.
One a small note: during the kapalabhati breathing we were told to hold mula bandha and feel the prana moving up the spine to the top of the head. I think I actually felt some sensation moving up my head during the practice. Either I was imagining it, or else I have never paid enough attention to these sensations previously.
I will try to show up regularly for the pranayama classes during the weekend mornings. I wonder where will the pranayama practice take me?
So, what happened to my attempts to do 108 Sun Salutations? My glutes and my hamstrings now ache too many Sun Salutations. Tonight's pranayama workshop is a timely excuse to rest the muscles. I'll see: if the muscles still bother me tomorrow I'll work on something more gentle. I'll see how it goes.
I've just confirmed my appointment next Monday for my medical check-up. Ultrasound and a peek at other womanly parts. Maybe it's because I have a birthday looming near the horizon: a reminder that I'm not that young and immortal anymore.
Wish me well on the medical check-up. I'm suddenly a little afraid.
