For the first time in what feels like forever, I am at home and having an ‘evening off’. The last month has been so hectic with moving house and decorating and making furniture that I don’t seem to have had any time to stop and write anything. So, what has been going on?

Living so close to the shala and to work is fantastic. Cycling to the shala seems to limber up my hips before practice too, which is good. Although getting to the shala is infinitely quicker and easier by bike than on the train, inclement weather conditions are proving to be a deterrent to practice. Where before I would put up my umbrella walk to the station and be done with it, it is somehow infinitely harder to get up and cycle in the rain. Fortunately there have only been a couple of wet mornings so far, and I only bailed on practice for one of those. Those cold dark mornings aren’t nice though 😦

I was sitting on the floor about 15 minutes ago and suddenly it occurred to me that I missed out headstands today. I have no idea what triggered my brain to acknowledge that fact about 12 hours after it’s occurrence, but there you go. I must unconsciously be assimilating my practice during the day.

Next week I’m off to New York – Hooooorrrraaayyyy. I can’t wait. It’s only 4 nights, but it will be fun and hopefully I can do some shopping. I have been so frugal these last few months to afford the new flat that I am really looking forward to hitting the shops. Hopefully not too curtailed by having BF in tow 😉 If any of the NY yogis are reading and want to catch up for a drink or coffee and a cupcake, let me know, I’d love to see you.
