1. Can someone please tell me what the hell Swan Pose is? Sleeping swan too. Photos would help, but I’ll take anything. Since Carl’s suggestion of sandbags on my Baddha Konasana legs is not likely to do anything (since my knees are practically touching the floor in Baddha K already), I need to go with Cranky’s big guns: Swan and Sleeping Swan. Thanks though, Carl; the problem with my hips seems to be strictly the front part, and seems to be soft tissue, rather than joint.
2. I forgot to mention earlier that today was the first day that I was able to hold Pasasana on my own without a wall or a teacher behind me to keep me from falling over. I love when poses start out as challenging but doable. I hate when poses seem impossible. Like backbending. Have I mentioned how much I am not enjoying backbending? And how exactly did I spend three years practicing Ashtanga without noticing how much I suck at, and hate, backbending?
