As you know, my practice is almost entirely without shala. Monday nights, there's an Intro to Intermediate (which is lovely), and Saturday mornings, there's the hardest power vinyasa class in the city (probably), but other than that, I'm mostly home practice all the time.
My teaching schedule varies, semester to semester, and that includes teaching yoga on Thursday nights, and also film screenings (at night) if I'm teaching film stuff, so there's a lot of variability in my schedule. This semester I teach in morning-to-afternoon blocks from about 10 am to 2 pm, and usually I have preparatory stuff to do before class, and so I haven't been practicing in the morning.
However, this week things got especially hectic in the afternoons, making my days more like 10-5, and I like to practice between 1-4 pm if I can (with this schedule anyway).
Yesterday I got on the mat at 8 am; it was either that, or 6 pm, and 6 wasn't gonna do. Primary (especially since I'd done intermediate to Nakrasana the night before) was tighter than usual, more tiring than usual, but really good for cracking open the soreness from all that intermediate backbending (THANK YOU, Janu A and C).
Currently it's 7:01 am, and I'll be on the mat sometime in the next hour. The Y where I practice is 6 minutes from here by car. I have to teach a class at school (about 20 minutes in the other direction) at 10:30. Said Y not only has showers, but a hot tub for soaking the post-Kapotasana outer hips :) Plenty of time.
Maybe this is becoming a habit; it's certainly nice to be able to get out of school at 2 pm (if meetings or other duties do not call) and to write more of that article I've been trying to finish for three months.
