Today's practice: 5 km run + 75 min Samadhi Yoga w/ Sarah Owen
I had a good run but the yoga class was a little off. Samadhi has two rooms and the bigger room we normally practice in was being set up for a day with Mother Maya. So the smaller room it was. Not a great space at all. The carpet is spongy (the other room has a concrete floor which I prefer, and I have floorboards at home) and there are two rather large iron poles in the middle of the room. I keep thinking that someone is going to fall over one day and really smack themselves out, and it'll probably be me! I know it's good to be out of your comfort zone and be challenged but I really don't like practicing on carpet. My mat bunches, trips me up and it feels like I'm dragging in my standing poses. It's not often that we have to practice in this room but when I know we'll be in there, I just don't go. I'd rather practice at home. Plus it's noisy. It's on the bottom floor right next to the cafe. I'm sorry but if I smell freshly roasted brewed coffee wafting past me, I do get distracted because I love a good coffee. The distraction could also be that there are people walking in/out of the room because it doubles up as an office. Bad juju going on there. When a class is on, don't go shuffling paper, typing on keyboards or jiggling your keys people!
