I know I’ve been missing and not posting a lot lately, but it’s because I’m working like there is no forever.
However, I couldn’t not post this: tonight I’ve done my very fist 108 sun salutations!!
Yep. Even my mat is exhausted.
I was inspired by this post and always wanted to do 108 sun salutations, but I never felt prepared enough.
It was hard, but I took little breaks each 25. After each 25 I’d rest (standing) for a couple minutes. I even think I did one or two more than 108 because I was too dizzy in the process.
After it, there was a “glitter shower”:
If you complete 108 sun salutations, my friend, you deserve a glitter shower. That and the little breaks were tips this lovely lady from the post I linked above told us. You should read it too, it’s so inspiring!
So. Savasana was a whole new experience. After 1 year and 3 months of daily practice, I had my 1st 20 minute savasana ever.
I was just laying there, feeling my heart beating as if it wanted to feed the whole universe with blood, and I couldn’t articulate any complex tought. My body was shaking and for a moment I think I’d die (I’m sort of dramatic).
But I’m pretty much alive. Here’s the picture of myslef I took right after my crazy adventure:
I never noticed how cross-eyed I was until this picture. Oh well. It’s charming.
I won’t say you shoulr try it right now, I’m still waiting for the consequences. But so far so good.
I’ve also timed it. About 45 minutes of non-stop sun salutations A.
I tought I couldn’t.
