Posing On Tuesday; Revolved Triangle
I wasn't at home this weekend. I told you that already. I ran off on a weekend getaway with my honey. When we got home on Sunday afternoon, we were both exhausted - and feeling less than awesome because of all the really terrible food we ate all weekend. We totally had nachos and beer for brunch on Saturday, just to give you an idea.
I've been planning this sequence for a little while. Triangle into forehead to knee into revolved triangle. Revolved triangle is not as easy pose to get into the first time...or the second or third time. It's another one of those poses, but its easier if you have a feel for regular triangle and forehead to knee pose.
Let's get to it, shall we?
When we were in triangle, our stance was pretty wide. You're gonna want to narrow your stance for this baby. Trust me.
So, we start facing the front of our mats. Feet are medium distance apart. Front foot pointing towards the front of the mat, back foot angled in about 45 degrees - just like last week.
Just like last week, you really want to keep your hips even and facing the front of your mat. So, pull your back hip forward and your front hip back.
The whole time keeping your spine long and straight.
OK, SO, like parivritta ardha chandrasana, the goal is to elongate the spine and twist. Try not to let your chest collapse down toward your leg, and always be reaching your arms long and straight away from each other.
