I wasn’t going to post this at first because I didn’t want to be all braggy and seemingly asana-greedy. But when the Good Doctor asked me if I was interested in getting to do some more asanas, and I said, “why yes, that would be great,” he proceeded to assign every single pose of Second Series to me.
The funny thing is that I can do all of them. With assistance, yes, on some. Kapo, I actually touched my heels with my middle fingers on both hands, with assistance. Unfortunately, I am having a bit of trouble standing up straight now. Thank goodness for the Leg Behind Head poses, though, because without them, I might be walking around in a backbend all day. With a bit of assistance, I was able to deeply get the leg behind the head on each side…and it went from there.
As you all know, the balancing poses are no big deal, so Pincha and Karanda were like…okay, not easy, and I was a little tired, but I was soooo pumped, that they felt good. Again, needed a bit of help on Karanda. But after that, the rest of the practice was completely smooth sailing.
I LOVE that one with the Garudasana arms. I can’t remember the name, but that’s okay…I have plenty of time before I get to Third Series, at least a few weeks, so I will have time to get to know the names of the postures better.
At the end, we ticked and tocked, and he let me try Moolabhandasana. Which ROCKED the house. I am not sure why we skipped all of Third Series and went to Fourth. But GH was doing the Moola pose, and I guess it kind of led to some inspiration and creativity on the part of the Doc.
And if you believe any of this….you are an April Fool!!!!!!!
