I’ve been a naughty naughty girl
Not only did I miss practice yesterday, I “gave” myself a new pose today… ooooo… ah ma… how naughty!
I thought I’d give kurmasana and supta kurmasana a try, for “fun” and because there’s no teachers around to slap me on the wrist. I seriously wasn’t expecting anything resembling either poses, but I suprised myself. I got my feet off the ground in kurmasana, then, after lots of wriggling, I got myself into almost a kurmasana. Legs were firmly behind the shoulders, my fingers were making contact (!!! – is that considered being bound? Maybe it’s a finger bind?) but the feet were not bound. I couldn’t figure out how to cross the right ankle over the left. My heels were pretty much at the top of my head on the ground and the soles of my feet were touching.
My back was really acting up today with the up-dog to down-dog transition, but after kurmasana and supta kurmasana, they felt a whole heap better. I only managed to get through practice by lifting the butt up high before pushing back to down-dog.
Other parts of practice were not so notable, or if they were, I certainly don’t remember them right now. I’m still stoked about the kurmasana, supta kurmasana thing.
Oh yeah, I didn’t practice last night because of the finishing touches of a promotional video for that site I rave on about (TheBroth.com). I have to admit, I’m associated with the crew who built this great site… I donated my voice for the video!
YouTube chose a weird frame as the starting image… in case you’re wondering, that’s me in the starting frame too.
