This morning, I did my baddha hasta sirsasana C, made a lotus, lowered my knees, raised my head, bounced off my arms, and landed on my butt.
Did the same thing again. Lowered my knees, raised my head, and stuck the landing! Yay! Very fun. I don’t do any pose more than two or three times per practice, and I limit the number of poses I do more than once, and I limit the number of practices where I allow re-tries at all. Usually that’s mostly about self-preservation — how many times in a row does a human want to do kapotasana, right? Even though I am now officially in love with kapotasana, doing multiple kapos is just too exhausting. Not the karanda thing, though — that’s just pure fun. It is so entertaining to just do it over and over again.
Okay, so the next thing will be to lower my knees, raise my head and land, then lower my forehead to the ground and come back up. Sounds so easy when I type it. Then the next stage will be to lower without the head. And then, in alternate-reality theory, to lower and come back up without the head. Fun!
Let’s watch Laruga do it for reals.
