So I catered the entire practice to what I needed to feel less spun out giving last nights students another practical view into why yoga is so relevant. We started by taking about 20 minutes to do a breathing technique that I know I can lean on for dropping me into myself a little deeper. then we did 20 minutes of slow steady breath lead vinyasa (very slow, not a drop of sweat), which again, for me, I know will drop me in a little deeper. followed by a few postures to open the hips and lower back, the places I hold tension, this almost always drops me in. Then finally into a meditation posture where we all sat until we each felt another drop deeper into calmness and closer to peace. At that drop we took sivasana as we each experienced it was time. I felt myself drop 9 times into deeper and deeper levels of calmness in that class, 2 times was during sivasana and that was my cue for bringing us out.
Your homework is to feel yourself drop during your home practice, asana not required, but is very beneficial. Listen to your bodies inner wisdom and let each drop take you fully so that you can feel for the next one.
