Yoga on Sunday at Neti Neti, Lisa always asks for requests. Just one more thing to love about Lisa. Someone asked for some sacrum work. Perfect, I could always work on my lower lumbar, hips and sacrum. So many muscles attach there, it is a tight spot for lots of people.
When I got home Aaron asked what we did in yoga class today, so, here I am in our funky room in front of the television showing off some yoga postures. I hope William hasn't found my blog yet... he will puke for sure (not really, he is pretty cool). This is a big hip and sacrum release Asana... Pasasana, it means "noose" in Sanskrit. I'm not sure what the name of the standing version is called I haven't tried this before today. Standing on one foot changes the posture remarkably because of the repositioning of the hips. It felt great.
One way of working this posture if you don't have the mobility to acutally wrap your hands... use a strap or belt and work on pulling yourself through. Once you get the traction behind your back, it is much easier to pull through with your chest.
At the end of class we did something pretty cool. With a partner... one person laying supine, knees to chest, the other actually sat on the others shins. Felt wonderful on sacrum.
Pull-up plan... this week is Grease the Groove. I think I did about 3 sets of 3 pull-ups on the close line poles. A method I really like! However, my left lat is sore. I must have some imbalance. oops. I will have to correct that this week.
