'The most dramatic (change) perhaps is that the rolling back and forward in garba pindasana is now done only 5 times. It used to be 9 which seemed very appropriate as the pose represents a child in the womb, but, changes happen.'
I don't know which it is, not too bothered about it, I'll try the five for a bit and decide which one I like best, I kind of liked nine though. Claudia's probably up to date as she's practicing with Sharath in NYC this week.
Started to wonder how many I do actually do, don't tend to count, did I learn nine in the beginning or did I just work my way around without any concern for how many. I found a video from last year and it looks like I come up on the ninth.
CK's done a post on this, there's a link in the comments but I'm putting another one here because there's a nice video of KPJ teaching it. Here's the link
Mainly this is an excuse to try out the Jelly wide angle stick on lens for the new Samsung galaxy S as well as it's black and white effect.
The first attempt is actually six rocks, the second go is five but I'm a little off the mat, but it's certainly doable. I center the shot a little better on the second, getting rid of some of the blurring around the edges. Right at the end I've cut in a shot without the lens so you can see the difference.
This is all a bit rough, first proper practice back using my hand after the screwdriver incident but you get the idea.
These are just a couple of quid on ebay, will fit on most phones and will allow you to film your practice indoors in limited space. It's kind of like that sticky stuff they make toys out of you throw at window. you stick it on and peel it off as many times as you like.
