Welcome 2014. I am still unsure of how this year is going to unfold. Will there be more or less (of everything) I tell my students often to soften there jaw line and really become aware of their breath, do not hold on to things which do not serve.. So today's asana is Eka Pada Rajakapotasana; King Pigeon (variations are welcomed) I love this pose simply because it is both proud and humble. Start in Tadasana; take a deep cleansing breath, ripple your spine into a forward fold Uttanasana. then with controlled movement step back first with one foot then the other and come into Adho Mukha Svanasana. BREATHE. With attention to the spine take the right leg straight up and back, bend the right knee and ripple forward to the top of a high push up. Using your breath and alignment, bring the right shin across your body and rest it on your mat. Align you hands close to your hips. Here is where the breath and and softening of you jaw becomes important, find length and stability (use support under your hands if necessary). Lengthen the spine. Access a deeper asana simply by bending the left knee and catching the left foot with the left hand. Stay with the breath. Relax in this pose first by releasing the caught foot then bring your forearms to the mat followed by your chest. Use support under you chest if necessary. Maintain your BREATH. GOOD MORNING! Do not forget to balance out the other side.
