I was feeling sick the last few days, and usually I hate to admit that, being yoga teacher and all. But when u recover, u go back to the mat with renewed vigor:)
So, I tried two poses with which I had been fiddling about -- You may seen my handlocked scorpion. Now, I tried the handlocked headstand (post tomorrow) and the ekapada bhujapidasana..
Will blog here only on the latter:
What u need for this pose:
- A good dwipadabhujapidasana -- there are two versions, one where the ankles are locked and anotehr with the legs out. The latter is the better one, to prepare for this.
- For the stretched leg to lift higher, of course, you need arm strength.
- But more than that, it is actually a lot of balance, because the leg will wobble a lot. To keep it high and straight, is the fun thing.
