Cold Yoga

My practice this morning was perfect. And by “perfect” I mean “horribly messy but I did it anyway.” After a weekend of napping through a summer cold – and, frankly, a loo-oong break from yoga after graduation – I got on the mat this morning.

David Farmar greeted me over the interweb (via yogadownload.com) and I dove into a Baptiste-style vinyasa class. Twenty sweaty, panting minutes later I was so grateful to have moved and breathed and done all I could do. Even though it was sloppy and sniffly and misaligned, it was perfect.

    Kalu Rinpoche, my teacher's teacher, always said, "if you're distracted five hundred times in twenty minutes, but every time you realize you're distracted, you bring your mind back — then your meditation has been perfect."
