The yoga week begins......

And the week starts with forward bending. I will practice primary. The vinyasas and the breath is important and shall be the focus.
A detail: In Ashtanga yoga we often hold the big toe with our first 2 fingers. A teacher once called this pistol grip. I pull the big toe towards me in trikonasana, paschimottanasana i.e. What I learned lately is that the big toe shows resistance and so that the toe remains where it is. These are little details, but the more advanced we become the more the details become important.
Picture: marichyasana A. The chin touches the leg, dristi is the foot.
