A satisfying post-holiday practice

I had just gotten back from a very relaxing break.  I had a couple of chances to practice yoga while I was away.  The first time was a short one, standing poses and finishing.  It was helpful to keep my body active and not succumb to the passivity of my current environment.  The second time, was an early morning full practice.  During that practice, my body was stiff and weak… must be all the food and alcohol I have been ingesting!

Today,  I started my practice with pranayama.  My breathing was consistent and flowing evenly.  Brahmari was so relaxing.  I also felt stable and comfortable in padmasana…so I pursued a 5-minute meditation.  It was calming and gave me a sense of composure.  The thirty minutes was truly satisfying for me!

Asana practice will be tonight…I wonder how my body will respond?
