Vital Energy

After the busiest day yesterday that I’ve experienced in a while: yoga practice (good girl), gardening, house cleaning, baked a cake, attended book club, and then a four drive to Sydney – today’s yoga class with John Norris was a dream.

Basically, we alternated doing pranayama with “flopasanas” over bolsters and blankets for chest opening over 1.5hours.

At the end of the session, I felt like a cool, clear, and calm pool of vital energy had collected around my heart.

I’ve been practicing pranayama in much smaller doses than what I did today, at the end of my asana practice each day.

As you get older, wisdom has it that pranayama and meditation form 50 to 75 percent of your practice. For someone as physical as me, it’s a good way to move from the material level to more subtle levels of being.

I feel I’m still in pranayama preschool but at least I’m attending regularly 🙂
