Think this is the first time I've filmed Vatayanasana. I wasn't sure what to make of it before, felt too fiddly. After Karandavasana, Vrschikasana, Mayurasana and Nakrasana, your pretty wiped out and this intricate bugger pops up. After it you have those nice relaxing asanas, it felt kind of in the way.
Since I started the full vinyasa trip, everything feels more balanced and now I really like it. I'm getting my foot much higher in my groin and the jump back has become really nice and floaty, it's fun. Need to get my hands up higher of course, looking forward to when I can balance well in this and breathe long and slow.
Wouldn't want to do this on anything other than my Manduka (re the knee)
Don't think I'm supposed to raise the arm at the beginning, mixing it up with Ardha baddha padmottanasana.
Oh and it's a bit spoiled at the end , didn't manage to float my foot all the way back between my hands.
