Luna llena 🌝 Full moon
No practice for me today.
I'm currently en route to France. 😋 Yay, long weekend!
And there's just something about pressing into #pinchamayurasana
that is especially hard for me.
Straddle legs or pupppy press variation is of course easier, but the pincha pike press I haven't figured out yet.
This is how #pincha
comes in the #secondseries
and I'm throwing it out there for #forearmfriday
y para #viernesdeinvertidas
con mi compi yoguini @aidaventure.
Straight up pincha, I'd say, is the most difficult. I was able to make all sorts of pincha shapes before I was able to hold the straight line, so don't let frustration get the best of you if you're still struggling with this one.
(I posted some pincha drills a few days ago if you're looking for some ideas to help practice. Hace un par de días colgué unos ejercicios para pincha si quieres trabajar esta invertida retadora.) .
Of course pincha as it comes in the Ashtanga #intermediateseries
isn't just about holding the line either, rather it's about maintaining the steady breath throughout the entry, duration, and exit of the asana.
The press up entry is hard and then of course there's that transition from the posture directly to #chaturanga
which is always so typical in the Ashtanga series.
When I first saw this transition I initially thought it was hilarious - of course it would be like that in Ashtanga 😂 - and then that thought was immediately followed by me thinking that I'd never be able to do it.
I've progressed from belly flopping this transition, to doing it with bent legs, now I can do it with straight legs, and I'm working to make it more controlled and lighter. Less is definitely more!
As I continue to see time and time again, patience and consistent practice puts the seemingly impossible within reach.
Feliz Friday, feliz transitioning, feliz luna, friends!
