Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Feeling like I failed

on August 19, 2015

This morning my alarm went off at 6.03am and instead of getting up, having a shower and going to yoga I reset it for an hour and a half later and when back to sleep. The past two weeks have been very busy and I was just really tired and a bit sore from training last night. I felt that my body needed more sleep and that going to practice would leave me exhausted for the rest of the day.

Now I’m up and at work I feel that I should have got up and gone and practiced yoga even if I was tired. I’m trying not to beat myself up about it and I know that I aim to go tomorrow morning and then will go on Friday for led practice.  I want this to be a sustainable practice and Mysore is a big commitment. I need to listen to my body and not push myself too much too soon plus I may need to ensure that I get to bed a little sooner on the nights that I have practice the next day.

On a more positive note one of the reasons that I was tired was that I was training last night and managed to do some really good handstands.

    Thanks for sharing this. But you know you have all the answers already – I mean you know you were looking after yourself, not failing. I think pacing is so important esp when you’re taking on something new. There’s always a next time to practice. The yoga’s not going anywhere!
