This pose is perfect for the essential pause in a vinyasa class. In my own practice, I experience this pose in a deep state of reverence. A deep understanding of yoga is essential for a long term practitioner. The more I mature as a yoga student the more I understand what came before me and the wisdom that truly embodies the riches of the eastern world of yoga. I am honored to have a yoga practice which serves as the rock in my life. The power of humility is felt when I turn my attention inwards and appreciate the life force within. As a breathe in humble warrior I actually feel the shift as I surrender and move into stillness. I can physically feel the stretch across my chest and small flutters in my heart as my breath expands. Don’t forget the hips in this pose! Yikes…I always feel some energy pulling and pushing in my hips. Take some time with the pose and go beyond…..see what you experience and what your heart is communicating to you if you will listen.
