The Blog title poster above forms part of a series of posters I made up for a book, 'Krishnamacharya's original Ashtanga Yoga', based on the public domain translation from the Tamil edition of Krishnamacharya's Yoga Makaranda (Mysore 1934) . It's available for free on my Free Downloads page above. There is a print edition on Lulu.com ( Note: It's best to buy it in print from Lulu as I can reduce the price down almost to cost rather than on Amazon where I have less control of pricing.

What is it about Mudra? Also... Simon Borg-Oliver on Janu Sirsasana and an intro to Simon's new 84 key postures course

This post was basically an fb share this morning but I want to post it here to come back later to this idea of mudra I'm starting to circle

What is it about the profound experience I encounter in mudra that makes it different from Pranayama and other forms of sitting. Mudra, it's asana but not, Pranayama but not, Sitting but not. As gesture, mudra expresses, indicates, signals....., enquires. For Heidegger a philosophical question is a formal indication (ontology) towards that which can not be answered (Ontic). Perhaps mudra then is 'gesture towards' and as such, earns its keep.

Plus I'm too excited by Simon's new course not to hold off mentioning it any longer.




Nice to see this post on Janu Sirsasana from Simon Borg-Olivier (See below). I was watching and exploring in practice Simon's Janu Sirsasana instruction just yesterday, while following his new, and really quite excellent course '84 key postures for strength and flexibility' .

http://simonborgolivier.com/84-key-postures/


I'm quite excited by this course actually (see appendix below for more details of the course content), just the kind of thing I asked him for a while back after studying his spinal sequence videos on YouTube, how he would put his physiotherapists hat on and explain exactly what is going on in the body during a posture and why the transformational effect of the slightest tweak in our approach. Here in Janu Sirsasana it becomes a 'kidney stretch' rather than yet another hamstring stretch. And then he's teaching how to keep these postures safe for beginners or those with injuries or just different approaches for those with different intentions. Marvellous.

For me, following Krishnamacharya's suggestion to stay in certain key asana longer (although Simon is beginning to make me question why I would want to if the asana, or its variation, is practiced effectively enough), to practice with more efficiency and benefit without causing injury today or after ten years of practicing the posture in this way it's a godsend. My Ashtangi friends will also love this course I suspect, blog posts to come soon although I'm only ten videos in ( but also some skipping around as we can follow the order of the videos or jump to the asana we are particularly interested in -see appendix below) and there are another forty to go (videos seem to be around 10-30 minutes each).

Note: I mentioned above that Simon is making me question my (Krishnamacharya's) long stays in certain asana, why practice an asana ( for a long time) as a mudra if I can tweak the asana to get the maximum of any physical benefit in a shorter time and thus save more time say for Pranayama and perhaps a longer sit. Mudra is considered a gesture. Is the experience of exploring this gesture, the breath, of the space between the breath in a mudra of sufficient value outside of any physical benefits.

What is it about the profound experience I encounter in mudra that makes it different from Pranayama and other forms of sitting. Mudra, it's asana but not, Pranayama but not, Sitting but not. As gesture, mudra expresses, indicates, signals....., enquires. For Heidegger a philosophical question is a formal indication (ontology) towards that which can not be answered (Ontic). Perhaps mudra then is 'gesture towards' and as such, earns its keep.

Here's Simon's fb post in italics on Janu Sirsasana that I hope he doesn't mind me sharing here....




"The ‘Head to knee posture’ (Janu Sirsasana) with its simple to complex variations has many things that are important to realise before simply practicing or teaching them. While there are many potential benefits to these postures if you do them correctly and your body has the prerequisite abilities, there are many potential risks and dangers if they are done incorrectly or if you are if you are physically unprepared. 

In our beginner level courses Bianca Machliss and I have chosen to teach mainly ‘Sukha (simple) Janu Sirsasana', where the bent leg hip and knee are not taken so far back. This does not require any axial rotation (twisting) of the spine to bend forward over the straightened knee. In this version the two hips the same distance from the straighter limbed foot. In this simple form the spine is mainly in flexion. However, in the full (paripurna) form of this posture (shown in the first photo here as ‘Janu Sirsasana’ but also known as 'Paripurna Janu Sirsasana’)) for the more flexible or experienced people, the bent (flexed) knee is drawn further backward so that its hip is further away from the opposite knee. This means that when the posture is complete the spine is not in pure flexion but in a combined movement of spinal flexion (bending forward), spinal axial rotation (twisting) and spinal lateral flexion (side-bending), which is obviously more difficult to do safely and effectively.

’Sukha Janu Sirsasana’ is effectively a simpler version of the 'Half lotus forward bend' (Ardha Baddha Padma Pascimottonasana) that is in practiced two postures earlier than 'Janu Sirsasana' in the Ashtanga vinyasa primary Series. For a natural-bodied person with hips that are open from a life-time of sitting cross-legged the ‘Half lotus forward bend ‘ is actually much easier than 'Paripurna Janu Sirsasana’. This helps explain why the 'Half lotus forward bend' (Ardha Baddha Padma Pascimottonasana) is placed earlier than the ‘Janu Sirsasana' postures in the Ashtanga vinyasa primary series. However, most normal people today do not have ’natural bodies’ and hence traditional yoga designed for natural bodies has to be approached very carefully by most ’normal’ people.

In our advanced classes and in the Ashtanga vinyasa yoga of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, we practice the full (paripurna) form of 'Janu Sirsasana'. To prepare for this there are other postures that are more difficult for the modern body including a ‘Bound half lotus forward bend posture’ (Ardha Baddha Padma Pascimottonasana) and a ‘Half kneeling forward bend posture’ (Triang Mukha Eka Pada Pascimottanasana).

In the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga system 'Paripurna Janu Sirsasana' is followed by two more difficult versions of this posture where the bent (flexed) knee is in a more difficult position. The first of these postures actually has the perineum sitting on one heel and is called ‘Bhadra Janu Sirsasana' (also called 'Janu Sirsasana B’) (shown in the attached photo). The second of these difficult postures is called ‘Bhaga Janu Sirsana' (also called Janu Sirsasana C) and has the ball of the foot to the floor and the heel raised. 

Both of these postures give a different movement to the hip and knee joint, both movements prevent excessive hip flexion (especially Janu Sirsasana C), which forces your spinal flexors to be used and forces the spine to bend forward, rather than just allowing simple hip flexion. In Bhadra Janu Sirsasana (Janu Sirsasana B) sitting on the heel stimulates the marmas and acupuncture points both on the foot and on the part of the body your heel touches, which ideally should be the perineum (also really stimulating the mula bandha (the root lock) and the muladhara cakra (root energy centre)). In 'Bhaga Janu Sirsasana' (Janu C) having the ball of the foot to the floor with the heel raised stimulates the marma and acupuncture points on the ball of the foot but it also internally rotates the knee, and thus can prevent hip flexion (but which can strain many knees if unprepared), but which is a movement that has to be learnt to get advanced meditation postures such as siddhasana (a more advanced version of the lotus posture), which is the best posture also for pranayama (breath control) but in it the hips are prevented from hip flexion.



I love sharing this sort of information and if you want to get more please join me for part or all of our very practical course on the ‘Applied Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga’ in Sydney from the 19-28 May 2017 (https://yogasynergy.com/upcoming-events/interactive-applied-anatomy-physiology-of-yoga-sydney/ )

Intro video




There is something curious about this course, one of those glorious accidents perhaps. It's not Simon's normal format. I suspect but don't know for sure but I get the feeling Simon was invited to teach the asana element of a teacher training or perhaps just asked to teach a workshop on 84 postures. Either way, many of the participants in the course seem to be experienced practitioners, teachers or teacher trainees. This allows/encourages Simon to give perhaps more information than he perhaps would on a regular workshops. The amount of information he shares on the course, the detail he goes into, is quite astounding yet because it is demonstration based it's palatable on several levels. I suspect you could come back to this course again and again and discover things you missed the first eight times you watched/followed it.  

With the 84 posture format it would be excellent I'm sure for my Ashtangi friends and readers of the blog as well as for those also coming from Vinyasa Krama. Hopefully it will promote safer practice, for our bodies during practice tomorrow morning as well as ten years down the line, it should promote a more efficient, more beneficial practice

3. Concordance with Ashtanga Primary and Intermediate asana 

UPDATE: I've added a concordance list between Ashtanga Primary/Intermediate series and the course videos to my post on Simon Borg-Olivier's new 84 key postures course.

Following the 'guidelines for practice' (videos 2-6 ) one might choose to watch one or two videos before getting on the mat and work the suggestions into practice of the related asana.

The videos 9a, 9b - 20, 21, 26 - 33a along with the practice guidelines would make for a safer approach to our practice of all standing and forward bending asana.

LIST 3. Concordance with Ashtanga Primary and Intermediate asana

Note: I haven't included the handful of related Advanced series asana that Simon mentions on the course - see the above list 8on blog post).

There are some question marks below beside certain asana especially in the second half of intermediate - It may be that some of these asana are mentioned in passing in relation to similar asana on other videos that I've missed (for example, I'm sure he mentioned kukkutasana in passing but need to find it again) - I  may update the list if I come across them or I may add links to posts in which Simon mentions these asana in his blog or on his Youtube channel E.G. Simon has posted several videos on Mayurasana.

A Reminder

from Kalama sutra, translation from the Pali by Bhikkhu Bodhi This blog included.

"So, as I said, Kalamas: 'Don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, "This contemplative is our teacher." When you know for yourselves that, "These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering" — then you should abandon them.' Thus was it said. And in reference to this was it said.

"Now, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are skillful; these qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to happiness' — then you should enter & remain in them. Buddha - Kalama Sutta
