I’ve just hit the 6 month mark with this go-round of yoga. This is by far the longest I’ve ever kept at it – and if I can’t run, it’s my second best option!

The studio around the corner does iyengar – which is all about doing things properly, correct form, building up slowly and using lots of props (blocks, bolsters, blankets). I realise how ridiculous my previous attempts were – especially trying to push myself too hard to be all extreme and competitive**. Now I’m focussed so much on trying to be correct that I barely pay attention to anyone else. I could do without the 6:15am starts though.

Future yoga goals are with suitably long time frames:

+ Janu Sirsasana (head to knee pose) – April 2019
+ Chaturanga Dandasana – June 2019
+ Salamba Sirsasana (head stand) – December 2019
+ Adho Mukha Vrksasana (hand stand) – April 2020

** golly! all the stupid and exhausting things I did to try and prove that I was worthy … of … something.


And quite the sobriety milestone today!
