Vashistasana Variation & Vishvamitrasana

Happy June!



Today, my practice focused on core, hips and hamstrings. Such a gorgeous day, I got to practice for 90 minutes today. The last 45 was long passive holds. I felt blessed, rich with the practice of yoga…in fact, Vashista means “most excellent, best, richest.”

Slowing down is always good. I am still working on the refinement of these poses. Step by step. Little by little. A little step in the right direction! I reflect back when I couldn’t even get into this pose. A small achievement makes heaps of contentment!
