Mariychasana D in Valbonne
Finally we are in a hotel room that allowed a nice sweaty practice. I practiced primary and this has been challenging enough. We have the heater on, this helped as it's easier to move in warm rooms.
Outside it's raining. We don't care.
Rain means that we read and enjoy our time in restaurants. And I had time for the classic primary on a Friday.
Marichyasana D: The weight is rather on the right side (see picture). The weight of the body helps to bring the hip down. This is much easier than trying to press the bended leg down. I think this is an important improvement of the last years to understand where to shift the body weight.
The goal is to have the knee close to the floor and the hip, too.
Marichyasana D is one of the core poses of primary.
Oh oh, the Internet connection is so bad here that I stop writing. I hope the post is not lost.
