Class was great today. It felt extremely calm. I could hear my self breathe the entire class. When the teacher speaks, I listen for something different or new that I can really identify with.
I don’t remember the pose, it was probably forward fold in rag doll, Baddha Hasta Uttanasana. She was asking what could we let go. Was I still tense in my neck, my jaw, my shoulders? I was continually asking myself what could I relax the rest of class. It seems every time I find that spot that is tense (particularly my upper back/shoulders or hamstrings), there is usually a deeper stretch if I can relax on the inhale and really let go on that out hale breath. I’ve really been working at getting my hamstrings to loosen up. I definitely feel an overall difference in how my legs feel an body feel.
Even days I think I am going to wake up feel incredibly sore or stiff, it is much more mild and my starting point is still relatively flexible compared to how tight I have been in the past.
Before class I asked Jamie a couple of things about the heel position in Crescent Lunge, Ashta Chandrasana. I was wondering if you needed to be up on the ball mount of your foot or driving the hell towards the ground. I think what it really came down to was lengthening my stance and really pushing that rear knee away from the ground.
Fantastic class as always, Jamie. Thanks you-
Infinite Love & Gratitude!
