Yoga, brunch and photo walk

Yesterday I read a bit in Ashtanga Yoga by David Swenson and found some useful things to add to my practice. To start with, one can use a dedicated cloth on the typical rubber yoga mats. It will keep the practice more hygienic since the cloth is simple to wash. I used my bed sheet which is 100% cotton, but want to find a dedicated cloth eventually, preferably some locally produced linen or hemp that is not too rough.

Then I also tried adding a jump in every other sun salutations, together with staying in downward dog for 6 breaths instead of one. It was fun to break up the usual routine a bit!

the note from today’s yoga routine in swedish

I added to my previous program!

Eye and head rolls, Spinal twist, Headstand, Triangle, Eagle, Sitting warrior and a long Corpse pose to end with.

As I am typing this I notice I forgot the leg stretches!! Bummer!!! I will add it to the program directly after the sun salutations

I noticed how curative the headstand is for any intestinal problems, it really activates awareness of that area!! Highly recommended!

Then I prepared today’s brunch

Fibrous bread, peanut butter, raw vegetable, fruits and a fresh smoothie.

I struggled to find a dark vegan chocolate at the closest supermarket yesterday and had to settle with a note sugary and fatty one… I added one white and one brown to the yoghurt which was featured in this blog post

The last major thing of the day was a photo walk north of where I live. Enjoy these colorful pictures!
