Yesterday, I had my first Hanuman 'touchdown'. OK, bit of a cheat, I lean slightly to the side to get my buttock down, the other side, below, is probably a better reflection of where I honestly am, but close, it's getting close and more importantly, comfortable.
Hanumanasana, doable after all, who knew.
So Madonna, her 'Sticky and sweet' concert was on TV last night. Does Madonna still practice ashtanga? Does anyone know? I googled but it just talks about the 90's, wondered if she still does, I mean, she still has Ashtangi arms and her 'Black Beauty' Les Paul Custom is surely suggestive of a Manduka.
Latest approach to practice seems to be working out. Simple Vinyasa Krama core asana practice in the morning( tadasana, a Sury, a rotating daily short asym subroutine, long paschi, Shoulderstand prep, 5 min shoulderstand, UD, 10 min headstand with variations, Shoulderstand/finishing, baddha Konasana, padmasana) leaving lots of time for pranayama and meditation and then Ashtanga, in the evenings mainly Intermediate(Primary Fridays), feels like the best of both worlds.
Just got in from work and still no Jois Primary/Intermediate DVD, maybe tomorrow, was counting on it to motivate me into getting on the mat for 2nd. Oh well, deep breath......
