I paid so much more attention to my body.
I activated my quadriceps in forward folds, my jumps into chatarunga in my sun salutations were smooth, and I actually tried to slow my breaths a little in Utpluthih (normally I do ten of the speediest breaths ever and just fall out).
There were some set backs in asanas where I thought I had made progress. But instead of getting upset like I normally do, I just took it in my stride because I was present in the current moment in my current expression of that asana; and not hung up on the past.
I lay in savasana until my mind was quiet then followed up the practice with a hot drink so as not to cool the inner fire; and read my book seated on the floor until my sweat had dried before hopping in the shower.
The whole practice was dedicated to ruby the dog. Rest easy sweetheart <3
