On an fb comment on my 'Kapo's from Ajay Tokas' yesterday I was asked if I'd seen his Karanadavasana repetitions video.... I have now.
I'll leave you to count how many he does.
Yesterday in the video Ajay was looking at different approaches to kappa I added one more, the long stay, here then we have another option repeating.
I'm all for repeating postures, do it once at regular pace then do it again slowing the breath by half, Ramaswami refers to this in his excellent Yoga for the three stages of life as a proficiency exercise in asana. On my own workshops we stand in utkatasana for three minutes (Ramaswami had us do it for five) and privately counting the breaths, take a mini savasana then repeat the exercise attempting to halve the number of breaths taken, its interesting exercise, try it.... then try it on you kapotasana.
Here's Ajaj http://youtu.be/vTuDttgLXrY
While I was hunting down Ajay's video I stumbled on this karandavasana by Sharath in Helsinki, I don't think I've come across it before. http://youtu.be/fLDxaGAoN8Q
If those make you groan and think you'll never do it yourself, HERE's my own which was never great but serviceable ( see also perhaps my 14 day karandavasana post ), been meaning to spend more time on Jessica Walden's approach where you come down a little way then go back up, then down a little further and back up and so on thus avoiding the face plant. her tutorial is HERE http://youtu.be/FOehXN5gdd0
Nor had I seen Sharath's Helsinki Dwi Pada Sirsasana 'tutorial'.
