Hatha for a change

Today was Hatha.

I know, right?

It's been a long time since I have done Hatha. In fact, so long that I was having to think really hard to remember the sequence. I only did about 35 minutes, so it was all the standing poses and just a few of the seated ones. Today just felt like a day to do something less heat-generating. I didn't even really feel like doing the yoga, and put it off until pretty late, though not as late as I usually do yoga when in Europe, since I have now pretty much adjusted fully to the Central European Time.

In spite of not really wanting to do it, I had a decent practice with good focus.

For whatever reason, I feel like there is a bit of an emotional lull in the trip right now. It has only been for about a day, but perhaps it's just a normal ebb and flow of energy. Trying to just go with it, and not get into the even more destructive thinking of "We shouldn't be having these kinds of days on a vacation..." because, no matter where we go, we're still ourselves, so why wouldn't there be ups and downs.

I feel a small victory for having practiced when I really didn't want to do it. It wasn't because I was too tired, or because my body hurt, or because there was simply no time. It was just not wanting to do it.
