#kingpigeonvariation#yogatoopenhips Day03 “Keep knees against a wall to stop them from slipping. Use a chair with a bar between the back legs. Go into it as in #viparitadandasana . Take the feet under the seat; rest the shins on the bar. Holding firmly, curve over the seat. Take the hands over the head maybe catching the front legs of the chair. Understandably, this #pigeonvariation is not for everyone so let yoga meet you where you are. Surprisingly this version of #kapotasana was very pleasing to me in order to feel the intense Backbend.” Thank You Yoga The Iyengar Way by #silvamirashyammehta. Be sure to have a very sturdy chair or have it braced against a wall etc.
Remember that wherever your heart is , there u will find your treasure
That's the beauty of backbends. Emotionally we can never be disturbed, for the emotional centre becomes an extrovert. When you do Viparita Dandasana, your head looks backwards, but your conscious mind stretches everywhere. Study by observing how the mind gets regulated. You not only know the freedom in the spine, but also the freedom in the spirit.~BKS Iyengar~
