DAY 14 PRACTICES
30 Min: Meditation – formal seated practice
45 Min: Asana
60 Min: Study and contemplation of Yoga Sutras. I’m continuing to read Matthew Remski’s Threads of Yoga. He dives into the concept of consciousness. Very interesting reading and lots to think about!

Contemplation: The Nature of Consciousness

WEEK IN REVIEW:

Cardio: I’m feeling stronger and have increased the tension on the bike to work my legs harder and increase the cardio.

Meditation: On busy days, this remains a challenge. It is hard not to get caught up in thoughts of what needs to be done. Abhyasa and Vairagya are my constant meditation companions! Keep practicing and let it go ….

Abstinence: TV – the only time I have missed it is on Sunday night as the opportunity to really wind down at the end of the week. Diet: Sticking with vegetarian meals – 2 smaller and one main a day. I haven’t been snacking but I have been having some desserts – vegetarian, of course!

ASANA PRACTICE:
Today I did my practice in silence. It was nice to have a quiet supported practice.
