Utthita eka padasana
One breath for your husband, one breath for your best friend, one breath for your teacher, one breath for your family, one breath for the fellow yogis. Done.
Or do you like to add a breath. Don't stop, go ahead, hold it one or two breath longer.
Utthita eka padasana makes us strong. It's easier to hold the leg up when the toes are pointed. So it shall be also: toes pointed.
I breathe deeply, engage the bandhas. This helps me. I try to forget my leg. It wants attention. It starts burning. I keep focusing on the breath.....
This pose strengthens the attitude: I can, I tell myself. I can hold it another breath. Yes, I can, I can......
