DAY 21 | SUMMER FUN
Wanderlust Festival in Squaw Valley -- a very fun summer event if you can make it! It's where thousands of yogis and yoginis descend upon 4,000 acres of the Sierra Nevada to play and find their #TrueNorth. Happy International Day of Yoga!
While taking a break by the pool at High Camp, I was feeling quite content and relaxed in half lotus. Yep, this is another triple-duty post. I am cheating a little for today's #stopdropBTY pose; tomorrow's a packed day and I don't know if I'll find the opportunity to take a selfish in #padmasana or Lotus pose. In this cross-legged seated posture, the knees are the main joints to protect. If your hips are not open enough to put your feet up on the thighs comfortably, try only one leg up as shown here, or not at all. Sitting on blankets or a block can help, and putting blocks underneath each knee can also make the pose more comfortable. The ancient yogis practiced meditation quite a bit more than the physical asanas we are familiar with today, and being able to sit comfortably for long periods of time was the goal.
