DAY 26 of our #homestraight #yogachallenge
We missed yesterday because there was so much going on on social media and we didnt feel like it was appropriate. We will be merging day 27 and 28 into one post instead. Apologies for the delay.
While the more traditional variations have you seated on the floor between the feet, I quite like this variation, sitting on the heels. While this variation may restrict the ability to lay back down compared to the variation with the feet apart, it’s a place that I often find a deep level of focus and connection. While seemingly not much is happening here, there is so much going on. Which often makes me wonder about my tendency to look for stronger sensations and intense experiences. Clearly, intensity exists within subtlety. And maybe that’s what the ancient philosophers meant when they referred to pairs of opposites being one and the same. Here is my embodied experience of that.
Day 28 (FINAL DAY!) Pose of your choice!
The final pose of our challenge - any pose of your choice. I chose savasana with a pillow under the knees. I have a teacher that rarely gives us a savasana at the end of practice. He likes to remind us that the entire practice should feel like one big savasana. I conceptually understand that. If the whole body is working in unison, and if each part is doing the work that it should be without triggering other parts to engage when they shouldn’t, that movement should be fluid and at ease, and the mind’s focus would be steady, and that the breath would remain calm, then savasana is a state of being throughout. There are fleeting moments where I get a glimpse of that. I still enjoy a good savasana at the end of any practice. ❤️
