Look at the sparrows; they do not know what they will do in the next moment. Let us literally live from moment to moment ~ Mahatma Gandhi
This morning I got up at 6:30 and did my yoga practice, starting with tuning-in and chanting OM and then I did my intermediate pranayama practice, followed by the bandhas, and then ujjayi and brahmari breath. Then I id my week 3 practicum class again because it’s the class i submitted as my final practicum, what i’m going to be teaching for my ‘final exam’.
My class was:
Tadasana – mountain pose
Warrior 1 to Standing Spinal Twist (kati chakrasana) to Warrior 1
Triangle to Standing Wide Legged Forward Fold to Triangle on the other side
Forward Fold to tabletop
Downward Facing Dog to High Plank
Cobra to Child’s pose as a counter pose
Marichi 1 Twist (and counter twist)
Two Knee Revolved Belly Twist
Then I ended with today’s Sharon Salzberg Meditation – sending loving kindness out to various people – people you like, people you might not get along with, people you are close to etc.
I was finished my practice by 8am, where I then had a shower after doing some oileation – oiling my body with coconut oil which is one of the dinacharya/daily routine practices we’re supposed to do for the next few weeks until the end of course – so then I was able to wash off the oil in the shower.
After breakfast I reviewed my anatomy notes for the final exam.
Today’s Hufflepuff bendy badger post I shared was 4 yoga poses to help ease anxiety.
