Sometimes I think I did nothing in my practice. Not really nothing, but nothing much. It felt that way today, so I wrote down the list. I’m including the props I used, because a friend thought I’d done Supta Virasana, Eka Pada variation (reclining hero with one foot; supta ‘reclining’, vira ‘hero’, asana,’pose’, eka ‘one, pada ‘foot’ ) recently with no props, bwahahahahaha! For that one, I used a bolster, three blankets, and a block, and it still took five minutes for my knee to come down to the floor.
- Virasana (hero’s pose), with a block
- Tadasana (mountain)
- Trikonasana (triangle), with a block
- Ardha Chandrasana (half moon), with a block and the wall
- Parsvottanasana (intense side stretch), with my hands on an ottoman
- Utthita Padangusthasana I and II(big toe pose), with my foot on a block on the arm of a chair
- Viparita Karani (legs up the wall)
- Lotus prep (lying down, one foot on the wall, the other across my knee)
- Jathara Parivartanasana (turning the belly)
- Savasana (corpse), with eye wrap, neck roll, bolster under knees
This took about an hour and fifteen minutes. Once I wrote it down I saw that I had done a lot.
