Double Day

I actually did a decent sequence this evening in the park. I’ve been doing way more breathing exercises and meditation than “actual poses” lately, so it felt great to stretch. Although it’s always weird to practice in a crowded Brooklyn park, you feel so many eyes on you (even if they’re not). Here’s the part that flowed really nicely:

  • Prayer Pose (standing, w/hands together)
  • Forward Bend w/hands interlaced behind back
  • High Lunge
  • Bound Revolved Side Angle
  • Bound Revolved Half Moon
  • Airplane (low lunge with forearms on ground)
  • Hamstring Stretch (from low lunge, sit hips back on heel and stretch front leg)
  • Half Moon (circling arm forward and leaning onto front leg to come up)
  • Dancer’s Pose
  • Full Dancer’s Pose (both hands over head to grasp toe)
  • Prayer Pose

Then the other side. Tree into Flying Crow was also a nice transition. And I held a Handstand, unsupported, for 2 whole seconds :)

The nice thing about the park is that I can jog to warm up, so I don’t have to do Sun Salutes! I really hate them most of the time. Which means I’m doing them wrong…

Spending 3 hours doing yoga today… who’s underemployed???
