Ljubljana, Slovenia: May 20 – 22

Workshop at City Joga Center.

caption

Pincha Myorasana: press the index finger knuckles, the base of the thumbs, and the inner forearms  down. Lift the shoulders, shoulder-blades, and  outer hips. Roll inner thighs back.

caption

Some partner work in Ardha Chandrasana: Supporting the upper thigh, lift the belt more from the front of the thigh than the back of the thigh.

caption

Getting into Padmasana. Allow the weight  of the left foot to open up the right hip socket.

caption

Another way to get into Padmasana: lay down first.

caption

Matsyasana with knees belted. Slide your tailbone away from you. If you have any kind of knee stiffness, it’s best to keep the knees wide.

caption

Don’t force yourself into Padmasana. In Half Padmasana, be sure to “catch” the foot that is underneath, into the belt.

caption

Supta Virasana combined with Supta Padangustasana I. The student is being helped with a very light touch, helping her to extend her bent knee thigh away from her. To help lengthen the right sacral area, the instructor uses a belt to move the student’s right hip away from the waist.

caption

Move the extended leg toward an upright position.

caption

Anyone doing Supta Virasana supported up on blocks and one or more bolsters has limited mobility. Great care is taken not to over stretch his raised leg hamstring.

The kitty thought my water tasted best!

The cat was very kind – he allowed me to stay in his room. He very much liked my water.
