  • There’s a new #DRonthecouch! This one is all about the terrible burden of Ashtanga dogma. 😭
.
Seriously, it’s about working positively within the structure of a Sadhana.
.
Spoiler Alert: I try to convince you to practice 6 days a week no matter how you feel. 🤪

  • Today is #AshtangaMondays 2019 week 6, and we’re looking at #prasaritapadottanasana A,B, C & D, from Ashtanga’s Fundamental Asanas (sped up x4).
.
After doing this same sequence thousands of times, it feels like a dance. A really boring dance. 🤪
.
In Ashtanga we use the specifics of each vinyasa— the movement, breath and drsti— to support and hone focus. This combination of mindfulness and movement, when we can get it just right, is a recipe for grace.

  • It’s time for another #DRonthemat! This one is all about everyone’s favorite: Chaturanga Dandasana.
.
If you want to get stronger, focus on your Chaturanga Dandasana. Try to do this pose correctly each and every time in your practice and you will see huge gains in a short time.
.
The only drawback: it’s really fucking hard. 😐
.
Check out my Chaturanga Dandasana tips in the mini-tutorial on my website: link in bio.
