yoga adventure with The Heart of Yoga by Desikachar.
One of the things that is overwhelming to me is how everything in yoga is tied to the breath--something that has been a struggle for me since I was a kid. With asthma and inhalers in the picture, it is actually a little intimidating--more so than being a size 14 and attempting sirsasana. (Headstand)
I can't help but think that there is something significant in being drawn to a practice that is mostly about breathing--especially since so much of my life has been a quest to get free from the pharmaceuticals. (In case you are wondering, Advair...while a miracle drug...is close to a car payment each month.)
So in addition to reading, it looks like I should invest my next six months before beginning the advanced studies program in practicing pranayama (breathing exercises). Luckily, there's an app for that. (Actually not kidding.)
