Vasisthasana


Vasisthasana is the pose of day 8 of the Instagram challenge #flylikeayogi. The last time I took a picture of this pose goes back to 2012. Also this pose won’t become part of my daily practice again. I prefer working on the side splits and forward splits. This will make this pose easier, too.

After 90 minutes my alarm clock reminded me to come to an end. I practice so slowly these days and I add so many preparation asanas that I’ve not enough time to do all poses of second series. After the twists 90 minutes are over. That’s OK because I really work on asanas.

Sometimes I also practice easier versions and enjoy them. I need time to relax, too. Also today I used a timer and set it to one minute to hold some of the difficult poses a bit longer than just 5 breaths.
How to learn is so important. It’s as important as the goal.

It has been a practice that exhausted me. At least the back bending asanas felt good.

Tomorrow I’ll work on forward bending asanas again.
