haleyoverland Charming little room at the in-laws' farmhouse for a long ashtanga yoga practice--warm enough up here for a good sweat. I've started putting on music when I practice on my own (makes the lonely hour and forty minutes more inspired). But it was the whistling, howling wind that provided the perfect ambiance. I'll be practising here for the next several days. I roll back the carpet; floor is a bit uneven. But, not bad, not bad. This will definitely do! 1d

haleyoverland Lost a lot of books in the GTA ice storm almost exactly one year ago--we still aren't in our new house yet. Missed this brooding but beautiful Romantic poet. In what seems like my previous life, I gave a talk called "Eating Keats," on the Pre-Raphaelite poets (who were profoundly influenced by Keats) and the trope of addiction. Best academic-paper title ever, I still think! It's not trendy, I know, but I'm still obsessed with late-18th- and 19th-century poetry after all these years...especially lately for some reason. "Do I wake or sleep?" (Buying this book--again--now!) ...PS: It will take all my willpower to not tweet every gorgeous line. 4d

haleyoverland Hard waking up at 5am every morning with the knowledge that you're about to push body and mind to their limits. That at the very end - when you're dripping with sweat and feel like you're done - you're going to drop backwards not one but four times, until your teacher places your hands on your shins so you can grab hold...and stay there. #Ashtanga yoga is no walk in the park, no "body holiday." But this 6-day/week practice makes you strong and flexible and challenges you daily on so many levels. Today, since the husband's away, I had to practice at home alone here in my daughter's room. I've internalized my teacher's whip at this point. There's never any skipping this hard practice, no matter how tempting that can be. "Do or do not. There is no try" ~ Yoda (the ultimate yogi). And my practice is DONE (for today). Namaste! 1w

haleyoverland What he does every night... Sits staring until he's certain the dog is fast asleep. Then he stares on the bed while I sleep, in between prolonged, creative efforts to wake me up. He does give amazing massages, though - the only thing keeping him on the very edge of my good side. #creepycat #stubborncat #annoyingcat #awesomemassagingcat 2w

haleyoverland First one here at @ashtangayogato for the weekly Led class - the only class the teacher leads and we all get to do together. The rest of the week is individual practice at our own pace - "Mysore" style, which Willem Dafoe defines as "Boy 'm'I sore!" Led class is hugely challenging because the teacher counts WAY slower than you count on your own, so you have to stay in the poses longer... Wish me luck! xo 4w
