To motivate myself I watched a video by Kino on omstar.com before my yoga practice. It was about eka pada sirsasana. I wanted to see if I was still able to do the four key asanas of primary: Marichyasana D, supta kurmasana, garbha pindasana and baddha konasana. Supta kurmasana is the most challenging one for me. The idea was to start with one leg behind the head….
I’m able to sit in lotus pose, I could bring my feet to my front, so what could stop me?
After eka pada sirsasana I tried supta kurmasana again after a very long time. I could bring my legs behind my head and I could bind. Hallelujah.
I could dance around out of joy, yet this pose doesn’t allow so much movement. Not much thinking happens either when in this pose. Just being in this posture is it.
90 minutes I was on the mat. The last 10 minutes I lied on my back and relaxed. It’s a good idea to alter primary with second series. One day I focus on forward bending asanas, the other day on back bending asanas.
To stand up after all these highlights of today was difficult. Oh my, my back screamed for attention. I walked up and down, up and down, like a lion in a cage and my back relaxed.
Tomorrow back bending.
