Remember to read more about My Yoga Journey.
To look at this pose, it looks like it should be quiet simple, lol, but it’s not really. I will do my best to explain. First, you hands on the ground about shoulder width apart, with your fingers spread wide and you press down with the five points behind your fingers and thumb and also at the heel of the hand. This is very important because if you put too much weight on the heel of the hand you can hurt your wrists. Next, your inner arms are facing each other with your with your shoulders relaxed and side apart away from your ears. You backbone should be straight from your neck all the way to your tail bone. It should twist, turn or bow in any direction. Next your legs should be straight down past to the knees to your ankles. And finally your feet should be flat on the ground about hip width apart parallel to each other. Sound easy? Hahahahaha. Try it once and have somebody look at you and look at these pictures and see how close you really are. When I came back to yoga, I couldn’t do all this, but with every class, I felt I was getting closer and closer to it.
