Urdhva Muhka Svanasana and the lunch: tomato paste, cheese, pastry and pear :)

For the asana, my shoulders should be a bit more towards my feet and downwards.
For the food, I am alone this week at home, so no cooking :) Going raw, yumm. Except maybe for a broccoli-noodle soup.

I started the primary Gildoff style (below) - saw it at Ursula's blog. I always felt uncomfortable at Utthitta Hasta Padangustasana, and now I learned that it was added after the whole primary series were practiced. My back sometimes hurts and there are so many interesting asanas towards the end; and there is a version of Utthitta Hasta Padangustasana while lying (Supta Padangusthasana)... I feel better to skip the last two standing asanas. I am not skipping the rotating asanas, I have been doing them for a long time and I do not feel weird when doing them now. But Utthitta Hasta Padangustasana, good bye for now, maybe see you in couple of weeks. I love the last asanas, especially I love dropping from Supta Konasana. It's so much fun! It's amazing that you do not hit the heels when you let yourself go. This is a play with the fear :) And Vinyasas are not forced in between each asana. I like that as well. Since I am starting after a long break of thesis writing and stressful times, that is just an awesome series for me. I do each asana in finishing. No removing asanas from it.

I am the queen of procrastination today. This is changing though.. Changing..
