Reporting My Practice

A late evening practice.  

Upavista Konasana (wide-legged forward fold)
Badha Konasana (butterfly)
Upavista Konasana (the most comfortable one of my life)
forward splits (at least i tried)
side splits (again, just an attempt)
forward splits other side (got more mileage out of the yin dragon pose)
child's pose
eye of the needle twist
child's pose
ended in crocodile, felt like an upside down savasana

Observations:  I had only planned to do one pose--upavista konasana.  (amber's one-pose-at-a-time theory helped me get started) but the poses themselves often guide me to do more once I'm in them.  I was surprised by how much heat some of these slow but deep poses created; I felt it rising all the way into my face.  

When will blogger add a sanskrit spellchecker?
