Low ceilings and slippery carpets

Today was vinyasa home practice in Boston.

The ceilings in my Dad's house are low. I never really thought about it before, but when I do a Sun Salutation, my finger tips brush against the ceiling, and I am not particularly tall. And the yoga mat migrates its way slowly in a counter-clockwise direction as my practice progresses, slipping on the carpet. Who knows why that is? Probably the same reason why my feet move toward the left side of my mat when I practice with my eyes closed. The interesting thing about this is not the details, but the fact that our practice teaches us to make these connections.

Interesting to me, anyway...
