Return to Taipei

My dinner is almost ready. Food cooked on the street always tastes so good.


At Shelly Yoga — such a lovely place — Vasisthasana (Side Plank Pose)


For pregnancy, practice Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose) with support. Avoid having the lumbar spine pressing into the abdomen by aligning the feet with the pelvis; place them in front of the trestle.

Here’s the block in the lumbar again. In Taipei, the blocks were thin and wide (better than regular blocks for this purpose). We belted them top and bottom, and then practiced the standing poses. The block is particularly helpful in Virabadrasana I (Warrior Pose I); it serves as a tactile reminder not to drop the lumbar spine forward. The students didn’t want to take them off!  Use the block the same way in Urdhva Dhanurasana and see the effect it has on your pose. (Not for pregnancy!)


On my last night in Taipei my host, Shelly and her husband took me out to eat at a place high up in the hills. The tallest building in the world (at least, until recently) can be seen clearly in this picture.


Nearly home! Stopover at Incheon International airport, Seoul, South Korea.
