Allowing the feet to splay out again while I get the coming up action back. Trying to come up more slowly and without rocking. Once that's comfortable again I'll see about reducing the duck feet.

I've just come across this video of Ramaswami's Sun Salutations with mantras (also sun salutations to directions- 'Ding namaskars') posted by Yvette who I think must have been on Ramaswami's TT this year. I'm excited about this as a couple of years ago I spent forever trying to make a version of this, practicing along to the recording of the mantras Ramaswami had made as a tutorial (listen and repeat) and that were originally included with his Complete book of Vinyasa yoga. The tutorial can still be found on Ramaswami's chant page. http://vinyasakrama.com/Chants
Here's the video and thank you to Yvette (http://yvetteyoga.com) for making and posting it (as well as her other Vinyasa krama videos) and to Ramaswami of course for 'playing along'.
Yvette, this is great, just seen that you've included the chants and translations
