oh f#%@k! don't sweat the sun salutations

keeping count has never been one my strengths, so when it's left up to me to do a set number of sun salutes (or helping keep track for my student), i try too stay focused and not get too hung up on the fact that sometimes i might be uneven in my practice, but that's part of life.  not everything comes at you evenly, so what a better place to practice than on your yoga mat.

 

yoga lesson: when you find yourself getting worked up on the mat because you've lost count (or some other minor hiccup in your plan for a perfect practice), come back to your breath and remember, there are no grades in yoga class! do the best that you can with where  you are in this moment.
