Sleeping & Dreaming

Today, I had a strange dream. I was lying on the bed and I dreamed that I was sleeping. How I know that? I heard noise from TV which I did not switch on. When I increase my awareness, the noise of the TV faded, but when I relax, the noise got louder. I opened my eyes and I found myself in the same room, but I know that I was dreaming. I got up from the bed and walk to the toilet. Now I really confirmed that I was dreaming as the toilet I was in was different from the actual one. I found it hard to maintain my awareness (that I know I am dreaming), and once when I lost the concentration, I really fell asleep.

Back on Track

I have lost the momentum of yoga practice since April this year. My favorite instructor, Yograj, has left the studio, then I hurt my back, always on business trips and I fell sick (fever and cough). All these has disrupted my usual 3-4 times a week's practices. It's a big wastes of my limited membership fee and I am now trying to get back on track.

I went for a Hatha 1 session yesterday evening and I was shocked that my body has deteriorate so much. Back then, I only attend Hatha 2 as Hatha 1 was too easy. But now, even a simple "Tree Pose" is challenging. The deterioration covers all aspects, strength, stamina, flexibility, balance, even concentration.

I need to resume my normal alternate-day-practice and I need to find a good instructor again. There are quite a number of new instructors joining my studio, it would take me quite a while to find one that suits me.

Profile Widget

I have flickr account for quite a few years and I always dream that some day my photos would be selected for Explore, where the 500 most interesting photos are selected among all the uploads each day.

I did not know any of my photos are selected until recently I found the Profile Widget which can count it. I am so happy when I see that 3 of my photos are really interesting enough to get into Explore.

I never know what is the use of manual focus until recently. I always thought that since auto focus is so quick and easy, and wonder why people still have to waste time doing it manually.

I discovered the greatness of manual focus when I attended a business event. I saw the reflection of the candelier on the dinner table. It looked interesting so I wanted to capture the image. Very soon I realised that it cannot be done with auto focus, so I have to switch to manual focus. The result is amazing, the image is better than what I saw throught my eyes. I am so happy that I have found a new way to take photos :D

A Small Bump in Yoga

My usual yoga practice schedule was affect by the personnel changes at the yoga center. My favorite instructor, Yograj, was transferred Centrium, and the Hatha 2 classes at Langham Place was replaced by other instructor.

The classes started to suck. Even thought it's Hatha 2 lesson, it feels like going back to Hatha 1. The postures taught were simple, no challenge. Most of the old students have disappeared, replaced a bunch of newbies, who can't even do the posts. And some of them even complained about the lesson being too difficult on the internet forum. Why don't they just stick with Hatha 1?! I think the poor instructor is really at the losing end, with experienced students complain too easy and beginners complain too difficult.

I was unhappy that even if I carry on, I won't be able to advance in my practice. After considering for 2 weeks, I finally decided to upgrade my membership to "All Centers" so that I can stick on with Yograj's classes. I re-joined Yograj's classes at the Centrium last evening for a session of YIN. The lesson was great and I learnt a few new postures, so I'm back on track again! *muahmuahmuah*
