I was looking for more yoga clothing online and realised that when I shop for yoga clothing for myself, I’m a cheapskate. But when I see men’s yoga clothing, I see nothing wrong with forking out $60 for a pair of shorts or $45 for a top (Australian dollars, that is).
I only looked at men’s yoga clothing because M is starting yoga in a couple of weeks and he was concerned about what to wear. I tried to comfort him by saying, “Honey, no one cares about what you look like in class, don’t worry, just wear something non-restrictive and comfortable”, but I know he’s not 100% convinced. I’m thinking of spending a few bucks on buying him some nice, trendy, cool looking yoga gear, but then I thought I’d better wait until he actually starts classes. After all, he may hate it, I can’t imagine that, but you never know.
It was so full in class today. It’s been getting busier and busier recently. Tuesday’s class is a split class, half lead and half Mysore self practice. There seems to be more regular Mysore practitioners all of a sudden. The lead class is also getting quite busy. It’s not a bad thing, just something to get use to. I don’t mind being close to other students in class, but I can tell some are not as comfortable with it. I don’t care about mat invasions, but I take care not to do it to others in case they take offense.
I had a short conversation with another student just before class started. I’m such a dope I forgot her name! She said she was glad to be next to me because I do a lot more vinyasas than her. I’m not sure what that meant, but I took it as a compliment. We ended up being in sync for the surya namaskaras, not on purpose, at least not on my part. We must’ve looked like we were doing an aerobics class.
I think I missed a surya namaskara B, I might have done two instead of my usual three, but I’m not going to fret and feel guilty about it. I was nicely warmed up so missing one B isn’t such a big deal.
Practice was very good otherwise, it was very fast and had good flow. I finished my Primary series sequence in one hour and fifteen minutes, including shavasana. That’s the fastest I’ve ever done it! I’m not doing full primary, I’m missing a few poses here and there, but I’m doing most of it and I did every vinyasa this time around.
Oh, I just remembered that I fell down in ardha baddha padmottanasana again. This makes it about 4 practices in a row that I fell down in the same pose.
I wouldn’t mind getting a new pose soon. I’m too shy and scared to ask C for one though, I don’t want to offend her. I’d love to try supta kurmasana, even though I think I’m no where close to being prepared for it. Otherwise, garbha pindasana looks like fun, or should I say funny.
Oh well, I have a life time ahead of me so I shouldn’t be in a rush for new poses.
