You end up looking at your feet a lot when you do yoga so they might as well be as gorgeous as possible (which is difficult for my summer-weary, chaco-sportin' toes). Oh, and that's my hand and foot in half-moon (ardha chandrasana) with their new "dress to empress" coat of paint.
I sat for a long time. I think sitting is what was missing from my practice yesterday. I get so addicted to listening to my music that I can't turn it off. Yesterday I was listening to Radiohead's concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl from last fall and it wasn't very easy to really focus on my practice. Today I was more disciplined about shutting off the music, and as soon as it got quiet, I got quiet (relatively). From now on, no music until after meditation! Just like no dessert until after dinner (not that I follow that rule either).
I like a very simple sitting practice. I was taught to meditate at a zen center, and the instructions were simple. Count your breath. When you get to 10, start over. I can never forget that, and I never get stressed trying to do it 'right.'
