Ardha baddha padmottanasana
Ah, a standing pose: ardha baddha padmottanasana. In the second series this pose is needed again. It's worth not to do it sloppy.
Some crucial points:
- The knees are next to each other. I realized on one of my pics that my bent leg is not 100% next to the knee of the standing leg. I could correct this easily.
- The neck is relaxed!
- The shoulders remain parallel. This is one of the main challenges of this pose.
- Using the bandhas helps to keep the back straight. It also gives stability.
- The standing leg is engaged.
So this was it for today. I filmed a bit and this is so time-consuming. I'm behind my schedule, much behind. Christmas shopping has to be done. And at night I'll meet a friend (or two), I have to be on time. It's our classic Christmas meeting at Rotkreuzplatz. There is a tiny but nice Christmas market. I'll have my first glow wine today, for sure, somehow I must keep myself warm. It belongs to such a meeting. Enough is said.
Stay cool, stay relaxed......inhaling, exhaling.
