One of the reasons that I have reduced my posting frequency on the blog is that I think I was probably trying too hard to put yoga into my life. I was trying to talk myself into it. It’s a common mental habit that I have: “If I write it, it must be true.” I’ve felt less compulsion to write, but I think I’ve been pretty effective in melding yoga into my daily routines –three-four classes a week, daily practice and moments stolen from work to center my mind. My understanding is moving from one state of learning (beginner) to another (having enough experience to start synthesizing the process), from the status in which everything is brand new to a state in which I start to have a handle on my experience. There’s a time lag in which this shift is reflected in my writing here.
