💙🛋💫Day 1️⃣9️⃣ of #SofaYoga 💫🛋💙#Scorpion in #ForearmBalance or #VrschikasanaI ➡️ This is a fantastic use of our beloved sofa! Give it a try and see what happens but, before you start to do so, keep in mind a few things:
1️⃣finding the right distance elbows-sofa might take a few tries, don’t get discouraged as that’s essential to succeed. You need to be able to feel the ribs ‘resting’ on the edge of the sofa once the legs start to go overhead.
2️⃣ never mind how close the feet get to your head, just worry on maintaining the contact with the sofa at ALL TIMES!! The moment you’ll peel off, it’s very likely you’ll flip over (at that point, let nature takes its course and drop on your feet into a Viparita #backbend).
I also like this version very much because it teaches us how much we need to sink the chest and how much we can counterbalance with it the weight of the legs going over. The longer you stay doing that, the more likely you’ll feet will touch the head. Mantra for today: keep the contact ribs-sofa, keep the contact, keep the contact,… repeat that to yourself every second you’re in it and look out slowly, rising the gaze gradually towards a point straight ahead. For those just wanting to balance in a semi-version of Scorpion, it also works wonders because you’ll need a super small jump (better yet, try to project one leg up and find yourself in Pincha!) then, maintaining the ribcage-sofa contact, activate the legs and send them wherever you still have balance and control. Watch out for long breaths because those might push you ‘off’ the sofa, like a hot air balloon going up… not that it happened to me of course….
