I’ve been practicing yoga since 2000. But I committed to a DAILY – Non Interrupted Practice on April of 2007.
That means my practice has just turned 8 years old… Happy birthday dear practice, I am eternally grateful to you.
When this time of the year comes around I honor it with a YouTube video.
I set the mat, and then put the camera to take one photo every 4 seconds. Then I make it into a fast video. It is mostly for me, to see the progress, to see what happens, and for fun.
This year I finally got to add the pranayama portion at the end, which I’ve been doing since last July.
Pranayama had a hard time sticking with me for many years, but now it feel indispensable.
And visiting Yoga Thailand last summer had a lot to do with that…
For example, It re-focused me and it had me tasting some of the benefits, like the incredible serenity and silence afterwards, the relaxation of the midsection of the belly, and a better disposition to accept anything that life may throw my way…
Some people may think this is showing off. I can see how that could be the case.
I see it differently, I see it as showing my work, and watching what happens over the years. I see it as a documentary of a practice and a way to cheer myself up for progress and notice the places where I may be slacking (supra kurmasana).
