Just when I’m starting to get use to supta kurmasana, I get given garbha pindasana and kukkutasana. So many new poses all in one week. My body is going a little spastic on me.
I’ve tried garbha pindasana months and months ago, and never really had a problem pulling my arms through my legs. I did that today and it was a bit of a struggle. Possible causes: I was not totally sweaty so didn’t have the slip factor, or my calves got bigger, and of course, it could be a combination of the two.
Anyway, so yeah, I’m rather indifferent about the pose itself. I got rolled around with some help, so we’ll see how spastic I’ll look in tomorrow’s practice when I’m likely to not get help. Rolling up to kukkutasana was not possible either, but who am I kidding? It’s not as if I expected to be able to do any of it by myself perfectly the first time around.
I’m fearing a face plant on over-rolling up to kukkutasana. Once I got up though, it wasn’t very hard to hold for 5 breaths.
I feel like I’m getting deeper into supta k too. I hope it wasn’t just my imagination.
The left hip, no… both hips are having some issues. No pain, just some weirdness. The hip flexors are sore, over stretched sore, I think. More weirdness wiht janu C on the left side; it sucked yesterday but was problem free today. What the?
I’ll never understand my body.
Had another sutra talk today. Third stanza. “Tada drashtuha svarupe avasthanam”.
