@SAMMIHAT, a lot of times these experiences with subs for a yoga class; are more meant as teachable experiences...

On a (much) more practical note, as a general rule, remember to check in with your breath:

parvati.tv/blog/tag/breathing/

From the Parvati TV blog:

"I find that focusing on releasing and opening alone encourages a deeper energetic experience. Simply helping people get into their bodies through mindful breathing, broadening and releasing is so powerful, as so many of us, in our technological, virtual world, seem to float above our innate and super potent connection with Nature. Lets arrive into the present and let Nature show us the way. Is this not the directive of Hatha yoga?

"May we learn to practice asana through a witness state, without imposing any agenda on that natural unfolding of the body/being. In so doing, may we learn to unveil our extraordinary interconnection with nature, which supports and nurtures us unconditionally."

I'd had ambient sound ("Rejuvenate" selection on the SoundTherapy, which is musical in nature) turned on (upstairs neighbor had earlier been making a racket!), and my mp3 going on my Dell (through iTunes) ...the same, getting-old-and-beginning-to-see-bloopers-
in-it routine freaking nearly killed me ... (and I'm talking physically--never mind that it appears unpolished) ...

There is something about MUSIC during a class which is verbally "led" (by either myself or by an instructor) that I must battle against ...

Have to try my mp3 file one more time, before I switch off to anyone else's yoga ...
Noticed how it helped my cardio belly dance last night.
This yoga practice as I'd scripted it, still has enough pilates in it; unlike class, I can go at my own pace ... I am wanting to go back to pilates class ... not used to having pilates class set to music by the teacher.

A few weeks ago, had been my first-ever live pilates class that had musical background (which did not drift in momentarily from somewhere else ...)

I'd had pilates nearly a dozen times with the same teacher, and she had been constrained from using music in the upstairs, picture-windowed studio from which she'd moved ... and this class, in comparison, was a killer ... I think it was the music ...
