Anusara

"What's hard about the pose, is the pose." --CS

Christina Sells (see blog list on right column) is powerful, insightful, direct and offers a whole bag of UPA (universal principals of alignment) to go safely deeper into a pose.

Theme for the workshop today: twisting and working the kidney loop which is a wheel of energy that flows up from the back from the waistline to the bottom of the shoulder blades, then down the front from the base of the sternum to the waist again. This gives a balance of strength with softness and is the key to twists, balances and chatturanga (4 limb staff pose).

All I have to say right now is... my eka pada koundinyasana will never be the same.

Practicing with cheer!
