You start where you are, the practice will meet you there.

In My Space

I texted The Elder today about a sale she's holding in her home for the Devi range of yoga wear. (Those of you who live in Kuala Lumpur and are interested, it's on June 8th from 2-6pm in Bukit Damansara. Drop me a note with your email address and I'll email you the details) Inevitably she asked, "How's your practice coming along? Ready for new asanas?"

My fingers remained poised over my keypad for a long while, as I thought hard about my answer. How is my practice coming along? I still have bad days, though most are pretty good. There is progress in certain areas, though some easy poses have recently become frustratingly and unexplainably challenging. So I told her that.

The next thing I know, she's calling me and offering to come over to my apartment to watch me practice in my space.

"What's the difference?" I asked nervously.

"Well, sometimes the space in which we practice also has an impact on our practice," she said.


So we set a date for this Thursday evening. I am filled with gratitude at her generosity, but the thought of The Elder in my little yoga room, watching me practice on my old faded mat, is also making me very very nervous!

i also have a little corner where i practise when i'm not too tired from teaching. how i feel while practising in that room actually depends on whether there are mosquitoes in there or not, hahaha. seriously.
