Yoga

  • About 21min.

Interestingly my Karna Pidasana is SO MUCH BETTER than it was the last time I was trying to do ashtanga at all regularly (a whole series, at least twice a week). I still had the lingering effects of the Ganda Bherundasana tweak (which I obtained via practicing angrily and obsessively when my last NYC teacher traffic cop had decided that 3 regular series assists, three times a week was just too much work to bother with.

I love the ashtanga finishing poses still, and sarvangasana, halasansa & karna p are my core favorites.

I also try to do a 1min urdhva d most days I work out, for the psychological & shoulder stretching benifits.
