Was watching Kino do part of her Monday 3rd series this morning and realized that, except for my needing an assist to get feet to head in Gandha B, I had a totally bitching 3rd when I was still doing it, completely on par with hers. That felt good! My practice now isn’t anywhere what it was, but I gave up the addictive parts of it by choice, and of course the injury I received in October 2012, courtesy of that 2nd series workshop with Kino & Tim in South Beach, helped. It’s all ok though. I wanted to take a break from that scene, and not that I could remotely afford it now, I know that there are better ways to spend 3-grand! It was really expensive because in addition to the $900 for the workshop, there was the flight, the hostel and missing a week’s billing hours. Even just going to South Beach, practicing alone & staying in a nice hotel and eating nice meals would be way smarter.
So ya my practice has a lot of messiness and I unabashedly stand up from my drop backs in a ballet first position, but it’s fine. I’m not trying to sell myself OR them. Here’s the link to the Periscope if anyone’s interested. I can’t imagine anyone being interested! It’s just that, in doing it the one time before, I realized why maybe K does it. Of course with her yogalebrity fame she gets a shit ton of people watching and commenting… It’s almost like having a teacher or studio mates present. For me just the very fact that someone might watch even a couple minutes seems a bit motivating. I’m pretty isolated, on The Hill, and I never thought I’d be able to yoga in a probably 65-degree room either. The Hovel was abut 85 year round, but I even got a space heater for when I switched to 100% solo, for when I started a half hour or so before the first might blasts of heat kicked in.
My stats tally is a bit short because I didn’t remember to hit start until after the first Surya B. I’d been all flustered trying to figure out my tripod. I don’t know how to use the damned thing, especially after collapsing it fully to move. Now I can’t even get the damned arms to fold in. I gave up & came back upstairs.
Shower time & then some applications. Gotta return my Comcast modem today. We just missed them yesterday. Got there a half hour too late.
