It's been interesting making the latest Kapo, Karanda and LBH videos. After a couple of months off delving into Vinyasa Krama it's curious to see what's happened to them. Do you lose them altogether or are they improved.
I don't seem to be reaching my heels any more easily in Kapo, still only grazing them with my fingers but I do seem to be keeping my thighs up a little steeper, I get the feeling I'm going to be able to latch on to my heels in a few weeks now I'm back doing 2ND four days a week.
The Leg behind head poses have definitely improved, much more comfortable there. In fact funny enough, most of the Intermediate asanas seem to have improve. I'm getting my foot much deeper into my groin now in Vatayanasana which has helped my control no end.
And Karandavasana, the mighty duck? Not much change there really, though I do seem to have a little more control coming down and be able to pull my lotus in a little tighter It's no longer a question of whether I'll be able to take it back up again, I seem to be able to do that at will, but I still have to use my chin to do so.
The more I watch the video the more I think it goes wrong in the last curl of the lotus. I think I go forward to counter balance it and then once I'm squished down on my arms I'm stuck there. and have to resort to bringing myself further forward by going on to the chin to get under. I think if my arms were less squished flat I could get some rotation in my shoulders to begin taking it back up.
Going to have to think about this and have a look on youtube, might add a paragraph to this and repost it later.
Very untidy exit, first one I've done in ages, hands toes and belly iI think. The return to Standing is because I practice Full Vinyasa.
