Are you satisfied with your practice?

And if not why so?

Myself, I have been pretty steady these last few weeks with 5 times a week. But I need to free up more time to extend my sessions since they are only so-so and am rushed sometimes. I'd like to be able to put in an hour or so each session. But only get in 20 to 35 minutes.

Now with range of movements I need to improve a lot more. But when the subject turns to range, I always recall a story from a Yoga lecture.... "Range is of the ego - Form is of the soul."

What areas are you wishing to improve in?

Yoga classes here have shut down until 12th January, and I really need those morning classes.

However, I have resolved to start working again through Iyengar's wonderful course at the back of that wonderful book 'Light on Yoga'.

I do not know how familiar folks are with that course, but it take five years and it reaches some dizzy heights. It is generally split into a morning practise and an evening practise. I do now know why I ever gave it up. My books and my mat are up in Scotland. I am going up to collect them.

Another change is that I am going to be more strict in keeping the sattvic diet, rajasic foods are so damaging to my state of mind and my practise.
