Workshop at Samamkāya

Coming into Supta Tadasana: with the knees bent and the toes braced against the wall, move back away from the wall by scraping the torso and pelvis back along the mat.

By the time your legs are straight, the movement and the friction of the movement of the body against the mat moves the sacrum directly under the pubic bone. This elongates the lumbar spine and softens the abdominal region. (An old mat with not too much grip left is best for this manoever).

Vriksasana (Tree Pose) facing the wall with block. Wedge the block between the inner knee and the wall.

To open up the right inner groin, press the right buttock toward the wall.

Vasisthasana action: grip the rope and lean away from the wall. Move your tailbone in to align it with your feet and the crown of your head.

Curving back over a tall block placed between the shoulderblades and directly under the breast bone. To maintain length through the lumbar spine, keep the tailbone lifted.
