Another Basic Day

This morning I did 3 rounds Breath of Fire, 5 rounds Alternate Nostril Breath, 3 rounds Sun Salutes. Then:

  • Wide-legged Forward Bend (the Ashtanga sequence starts similarly)
  • Triangle, each side
  • Headstand
  • Forearm Stand (lifting up for 2 seconds!)
  • Shoulder Stand
  • Bridge
  • Wheel
  • Seated Forward Bend
  • Seated Spinal Twist

All very brief. Probably 15 minutes to do the 9 poses listed. I was just intending to do one Sun Salute, to stretch my sore muscles (Yiannis’ class Sunday morning had a lot of challenging poses I hadn’t done in a while; Julianna’s class Monday night held the poses for at least 20 seconds each) but I fell into the Sivananda poses after that. Benefits of sequence-based practice.

Soon I will post a comparison of the most popular yoga sequences; I’m curious to see how they compare visually.
