This morning I included the purvatanasana subroutine in my morning practice, it's the next one in my on going practice notes project and I like to revisit them before writing them up. It's a short subroutine, just purvatanasana and vashitasana and I didn't have a lot to write about the postures, relatively straightforward.
To fluff it up a bit I thought I'd include the Vashitasana subroutine from the Visesha chapter. A reminder, I tend to practice full on Ashtanga in the evenings but the morning I now keep for a light vinyasa Krama asana practice, quite short but followed by extended pranayama and meditation, I'm loving it, very chilled out way to start the day.
....but not today.
The vishitasana subroutine is quite frankly evil, it is beyond tapas. To film it I had to practice it three times and still kept falling out of postures. Supposedly were supposed to stay at each stage of the sequence for three breaths, I managed one...just about.
However, if your an ashtangi and want to build you arm strength back up for 3rd...especially after 2nd series which has less jump backs than primary then this might just be your thing.
