Guruji has referred to family as the 7th series (the ashtanga system has 6 series of asana). With my newborn, the asana practice has taken a back seat. Ashtanga continues to be my practice, though I see the mat infrequently these days. I hope to start updating on my evolving practice and how it fits in with my expanded family.
We hiked at Natural Bridge State Park today. It's a little over an hour from the city but feels like worlds away. Today was the perfect day for a hike. The air was cool, crisp, and damp. The sweet smell of leaves permeated the air. The last of the fall colors were on display. What a marvelous day to share with my love.
