Tried to Bikram-ize my #yoga practice a bit today #ashtanga

Active rest day

Primary+ but not any of the extras. Lately I get sidetracked with working and don’t get to my workout until the early evening. I decided to do it upstairs, in the sun puddle, where it was 81 degrees and I’d have privacy. Omitted the usual poses but also left out all of the hand standing but 2 at the end of the fundamentals and 1 tick at the end.

I sweat like a pig, in the unaccustomedly warm room, but my body wasn’t really fooled, into thinking it was exercising. I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again. Ashtanga is exercise in a group setting when you’re in the learning & striving curve. After that, not so much unless you’re doing full 3rd.

I needed a rest from the jumping though, and I also needed a stretch. It was good.
