Hello blog world,
We had a really lovely vacation and I’m also happy to be home. One of the many benefits of moving to Austin. I’m not sad to come home. (The view is not quite as inspiring, but I was inspired by the outdoor time to do more things outdoors despite the heat and to get my cardio resolution upto a higher level, I’ve gone from none to some. Now, some to daily and vigorous)
Also it helps that we have a few days of stay cation in front of us, which is also nice. Okay, I have some work to do, but I’m keeping the stay-cation frame of mind.
I definitely can tell a difference in my frame of mind having worked all of June, the a week of philosophy conferencing (#academicproblems) so I want to make sure I do feel like I’ve had some time to think and regroup before the semester starts again. (For me classes start with Plato seminar four weeks from yesterday).
Also, Junior 2 assessment is right around the corner. Seven weeks from today.
Today’s class sequence is based on a junior 2 assessment question. Write a sequence that develops inversions and variations I am assuming it means the variations which are on my syllabus
And also draws upon Patricia’s exhortation to build practice around inversions to increase stabilization. (I wrote about this about in yoga for troubled times).
So the inversions and variations that are on the Junior 2 syllabus are.
Adho Mukha Vrksasana Palms forward.
Eka Pada Sirsasana
Eka Pada Sarvangasana foot all the way to the floor.
I’m just going to use poses on the syllabi rather than parts of poses and poses not on the syllabi.
Bharadvajasana 1 and 2
AMS, Palms on Bricks (I’ve found this variation helpful for getting more opening in my back and armpits)
AMS without support
Utthita Hasta Padangustasana
AMVrk Hands forward
