🙏❤️📿 Day 1️⃣6️⃣ of #ForTheLoveOfYoga with @cyogalab 🔀 #TittibhasanaC 📿❤️🙏 The more unknown of the Tittibhasana family, this one requires a bit less flexibility than its brother B, but there’s a lot balancing involved, probably as much as in A, only this one’s on the feet. The wall will be of GREAT help for that! Especially the first few times you #practice this, face one, go into a forward fold, legs hip width apart (or less, if you can, it’ll be easier when you’ll have to bring the heels together), pass the body through the space between them and, if at this point your back no longer touches the wall, scoop a bit closer to it. Approach carefully the heels until there’s a very small gap, then engage the hip flexors deeply and pass the head, shoulders, arms and torso, through that hole. ‘Seal’ that space by connecting the heels completely, toes pointing out to the sides. Try to wrap the arms around the ankles and lace the fingers. Straighten the legs as much as you can (hello hamstrings!), while you maintain your balance. I think this pose looks more harmless than it is (balancing is a big issue!), so try to move patiently in and out of it. At some point you might feel trapped/entangled, just keep breathing to allow that sensation to leave. If you keep the little fingers on the floor at all times, that’s cheating a bit but, it’ll make you life easier. You can use this #asana to warm up for other ‘leg behind the head’ poses too. If your hips are too stubborn to even start to do this, wait up for tomorrow’s modification to help you get ahead!! Nobody is left behind, don’t worry, you’ll be able to, at least, try that one. Stay tuned!!!
