Daily, home asana practice has always been hard for me. I want my space to look like the spreads in the magazine. Clean, bright, tranquil, color-coordinated. Did I mention clean? So there's usually a "oh, let me just tidy up before my practice", which inevitably causes a piece of paper to cross my path which leads to a "oh, let me get this email out before my practice", which, these days, inevitably is interrupted with a "oh, baby's awake!".
But that's part of our practice. That very work of letting that which isn't important at the present moment, even if it's important at another time.
And a practice it is.
The yoga sutras remind us that we can only make progress with repeated, applied effort. So we repeat, every day, getting on the mat, prioritizing decluttering our mind over decluttering our floor (after checking that it's baby-safe!).
Handstand won't be achievable without practice. peaceful self-awareness wont be either. So choose to practice. In the middle of the clutter.
