I want to write about the correct vinyasa count and the corresponding movement. M taught me this, who else. No matter which forward bending pose it is, most of the time the dristi is the big toe. The chin is on the shin and I remain for 5 breaths there. Then with the next inhaling I lift the upper chest, but only the upper chest. The back and the neck are in line and not like in picture 3, where I look forward to a fata morgana.
With the next inhaling I lift the body up.
With the next exhaling I jump back into chaturanga dandasana. My feet touch the floor, I still need strength for this elegant vinyasa.
