Your homework is to contemplate how the practice of vinyasa is really a practice of being present to the constant state of reality we live in. Reality is very much set up for us to play in it the way we play in vinyasa. There is no pause in the continuum of our connection to life... that is until we fall asleep. Yoga, seen in this light becomes the practice of being awake as much as possible. We practice not "checking out" during a flow and we take that practice off the mat and practice not "checking out" during our life.
