Wandering mind

Today was vinyasa with Zak.

For the first half of class today, I really couldn't wait for it to be over. It was mainly because my mind was jumping ahead to wanting to be home. And there was a clear recognition of "Thinking like this is going to make 75 minutes seem like a really long time." That's what happens, but it's hard to stop it when it's happening. About 45-50 minutes into the class, my mind finally started to quiet down. By the end of class, I was finally ready for practice. Funny how that works.

It was a challenging class, with lots of really deep stuff, and some unusual poses. I tried to do most of it. Zak brings out the curiosity in the practice. But I do have my physical and mental limits. Trying to get closer to being governed by the physical ones, but it's important to make wise decisions about which is which.
