For today’s modification, I want you to find a (aka, foot-to-armpit) version that works best. In a lot of Yogidanda moves, not all of them, but in quite a few, there’s an important twist component, besides the obvious so, any deep twists (Marichy C, Marichy F, Seated Twist, Twist Interlock...), twisting arm balances (Side Crow, Twisting Scissors...), as well as some hip openers (Pigeon, Squats with heels on the ground, standing poses with front leg bent to 90...), included in your warm up, will be a great preparation for something like this. In fact, I find that, in this variant, the hip opener is not the most challenging piece, balancing on the tip of the sacrum, and that last bind of the outer shin (really deep twist!), to be the hardest ones. The binding is just the cherry on top of the cake, and you can use a wall or sofa in front if you’re wobbly. Focus on the essentials: maintain the contact, arch of the foot-triceps, ‘grab’ with those toes over the arm, push foot & arm against each other to keep a healthy tension, keep twisting and, if it’s within reach (meaning that you won’t have to hunch too much), hold the outer edge of the other foot and sit up. That’s plenty, but it’s also very doable if you include these kind of hip openers frequently into your . Modify as needed and hang in there!! Finish line is just around the corner, stick with me!!
