I bound in marichyasana 1 this morning :D :carrot: :D

I've just been doing yoga at home every morning for 3 months, over an hour. I'm the type that does things on her own, reads a ton. I need to get into a class, I'm sure they could correct a lot on me, but I haven't worked that out yet.

But I didn't expect to bind in this for months. It just didn't seem possible. And it just happened. Well, my fingertips brushed last weekend, but this morning I just reached and there it was. I got a little euphoric ;)

LOL, I figure if you do yoga you'll know, if you don't, I dunno how to explain it :) It's a seated twist, the binding part clasping your hands behind your back, one arm around a bent knee. http://www.yogapilates.co.uk/galleries/marichyasana_a.php

holy moly! you are almost a human pretzel! can you touch your knee with chin?

if not, bet you will get there.

it reminds me of cirque du soliel (sp).

LOL, no chin to knee for me, I'm much more like the bottom picture. I can barely do it.
