poses, sequences

Nice practice this morning

It wasn’t much out of the ordinary.  As usual, I was sleepy and didn’t have much time.  I did seated forward bends, downward facing dogs, dolphin poses, and whatever you call Chaturanga on your forearms.  A couple of Parsvottanasanas (what is the English for that?  Standing forward bends?), Jathara Parivrtanasana (reclining twist), Viparita Karani (legs up the wall), and a very good Savasana.

I read a great comment about Savasana recently, and it’s bugging me that I can’t remember where.  It might have been in Yoga Anatomy, by Leslie Kaminoff, or in this month’s Yoga Journal, but I can’t find it.  I’m going to keep hunting.  The gist of it was that in Savasana we focus on breathing and relaxation.  Otherwise it’s just a nap.
