My Melbourne yoga setup
I've been pretty diligent with my morning Ashtanga practice since I've started traveling around Australia. I've done yoga on a lot of carpets, kitchen floors, and quiet little corners.
In my expertise, carpet throws off balance and makes jumping forward and back really difficult. So, I try to avoid it.
But kitchen tile is incredibly hard, so I grab a sarong or towel to cushion my old bones.
The view of stove, vacuum, and table fades away by Surya Namaskar B.
I'm loving self-practice because I don't have to wait for adjustments (while at the same time, I miss them), and I can listen more carefully to my own breath and rhythm. I'm expecting my return to Mysore to be loud and busy as compared to self-practice.
There's no better way to usher in a new year than with a good, strong, knock-the-sense-back-into-you Ashtanga practice!
Happy New Year!
