poses, self-talk, YoMo

Focus pose

When we did YoMo in January, I chose two poses that are really hard for me to work on during that month – Upavistha Konasana (seated wide angle) and Supta Virasana (reclining hero).

Supta Virasana improved enormously, as I’ve described recently.  Upavistha Konasana, not so much.  So during this June YoMo I’m going to work on it some more, and I’m going to add Parivrtta Trikonasana. In that pose I have trouble staying upright, trouble twisting enough, trouble keeping my hips in the right place, oh, just trouble all around.

This method works well for me.  I really like delving into one pose and paying attention to every aspect of it. I am also always delighted by my improvement.  

I just don’t know about Upavistha Konasana.  My hips have a lifetime of stiffness.  I’ll keep trying, though.
