That was a much better Astanga than the last one!

Last time I did the jump rope warm-up. That always makes the WO aspect of the yoga better, but my muscles are sore and I’m sighing a lot. I decided ahead of time I’d practice as sloooowwww as I want. I wore the monitor like usual but the main goal & intention for today’s practice was mindbody therapy. I was extra specific getting into poses & took extra breaths where it felt needed.


Poses Comments
Suryas & Standing Fundamentals w/ standing arches in the 5 Surya As. 3lb weights in the backbends 3-5. With the two 5-breath handstands @ the end
Primary+ Skipping 4 poses of primary w/ added LBH. 
Ardha Matseyendrasana, var through the legs bind
Shalabhasana A, B
Bhekasana, 1/2 & full
Dhanurasana A, B
Laghu Vajrasana
Hanuman single intervals of 10/60, foot against wall, 20sec upright, 40 back bending. Final 15sec looking head back
Rack single interval of 10/60
Block B (under hips) single interval of 10/60, feet on the wall
Kapo B Shallow but I should do every time. No matter how “bad” it is, it still helps the back bending. And as I’m not trying to bind or bend elbows to floor, it’s perfectly safe for me.
Urdhva D come to standing
Dropbacks 3x
Ticks 3x
Finishing With 5min savasana
