Sweat a little.
Not loving the temperature at the Upper East Side Icebox. The Good Doc fully denies that this perception of coldness that I have is the actual reality. Instead, it’s “put your chin to your chest and fully exhale.”
Also, I am no longer allowed to pick up my back heel in any standing poses, not even to get INTO the pose. This is not much of a problem, you would think, except in Parvritta Parsvakonasana – that twisted mofo of a standing pose which I can STILL barely get myself into, even now, even picking my back heel up and putting my back knee on the floor and cranking. Funny thing is, when I make the effort to get into the pose without the aforementioned cheat (which I had no idea was a cheat until now), it makes my back crack in a very satisfying manner. Who knew?
For all the other standing poses, it simply takes concentration and awareness to keep my back heel from picking up.
Funny that the Good Doc would see me as a Kapha when I am so the OPPOSITE of grounded. I can’t even keep my feet from flying off the floor.
