00:00:07,859 –> 00:00:10,440

5
00:00:10,440 –> 00:00:12,719
I wanted to talk about forum Stand

6
00:00:12,719 –> 00:00:15,059
pincha mayurasana what we say in

7
00:00:15,059 –> 00:00:17,369
sanskrit which is a really beneficial

8
00:00:17,369 –> 00:00:19,800
pose because we’re upside down it’s also

9
00:00:19,800 –> 00:00:21,840
a lot of fun it happens to be one of my

10
00:00:21,840 –> 00:00:25,350
favorite favorite poses so i want to

11
00:00:25,350 –> 00:00:26,430
teach you by the looked a little

12
00:00:26,430 –> 00:00:28,529
challenging but with the right alignment

13
00:00:28,529 –> 00:00:31,380
some practice many of us can do this

14
00:00:31,380 –> 00:00:34,079
pose so basically first you want to

15
00:00:34,079 –> 00:00:37,829
start out in classic downward dog flat

16
00:00:37,829 –> 00:00:39,750
hands i think this is a really good way

17
00:00:39,750 –> 00:00:42,480
to start learning form standing bring it

18
00:00:42,480 –> 00:00:44,940
into your practice and then you just

19
00:00:44,940 –> 00:00:46,680
start to work on lowering your elbows

20
00:00:46,680 –> 00:00:48,930
towards one another closer than you

21
00:00:48,930 –> 00:00:52,170
think maybe halfway and then coming up

22
00:00:52,170 –> 00:00:53,579
all the way you try that a couple times

23
00:00:53,579 –> 00:00:56,340
and eventually lower all way down to

24
00:00:56,340 –> 00:00:59,370
your bat okay you don’t want your elbows

25
00:00:59,370 –> 00:01:01,079
together why because this is where we

26
00:01:01,079 –> 00:01:03,870
lose our power we want our elbows to be

27
00:01:03,870 –> 00:01:05,700
right underneath our shoulders and if

28
00:01:05,700 –> 00:01:07,170
you’re unsure you can measure just by

29
00:01:07,170 –> 00:01:09,510
grabbing opposite elbows like this okay

30
00:01:09,510 –> 00:01:12,000
so hands flat and I gave my Drishti my

31
00:01:12,000 –> 00:01:13,680
gauge spa’s would be right between my

32
00:01:13,680 –> 00:01:14,159
thumbs

33
00:01:14,159 –> 00:01:16,619
I’m going to come back into downward dog

34
00:01:16,619 –> 00:01:19,710
legs still in between my thumbs and then

35
00:01:19,710 –> 00:01:22,439
walk your feet in as much as you can and

36
00:01:22,439 –> 00:01:25,950
I’m going to lift one leg up now very

37
00:01:25,950 –> 00:01:28,860
important there’s open hips and there’s

38
00:01:28,860 –> 00:01:31,590
closed hips or hips become square and

39
00:01:31,590 –> 00:01:33,420
the thighs are rolling in you really

40
00:01:33,420 –> 00:01:36,090
want to do closed hips here and that’s

41
00:01:36,090 –> 00:01:38,400
going to help provide stability as we

42
00:01:38,400 –> 00:01:41,159
lift off our other toe don’t want to

43
00:01:41,159 –> 00:01:43,740
kick too much you just want to press all

44
00:01:43,740 –> 00:01:48,149
the way up you can bounce here looking

45
00:01:48,149 –> 00:01:50,490
for yourself when you’re learning and

46
00:01:50,490 –> 00:01:50,880
just

47
00:01:50,880 –> 00:01:53,789
your legs good now when you’re flirting

48
00:01:53,789 –> 00:01:56,280
a lot of times you’re going to fall I

49
00:01:56,280 –> 00:01:58,979
fell hundreds of time and if you fall

50
00:01:58,979 –> 00:02:01,770
the best thing to do is just come out of

51
00:02:01,770 –> 00:02:03,689
it chances are you’re not going to get

52
00:02:03,689 –> 00:02:06,869
hurt the other thing we can talk about

53
00:02:06,869 –> 00:02:09,989
probably another conversation but it’s

54
00:02:09,989 –> 00:02:12,300
your back opens up it’s just learning to

55
00:02:12,300 –> 00:02:16,890
come back so again lifting up and let’s

56
00:02:16,890 –> 00:02:20,130
say sometimes you do fall but keep

57
00:02:20,130 –> 00:02:22,290
looking between my thumb’s and stretch

58
00:02:22,290 –> 00:02:25,890
my back come up on one leg and you can

59
00:02:25,890 –> 00:02:28,790
come back the other way

60
00:02:29,420 –> 00:02:31,980
now I beginner it still freaked out that

61
00:02:31,980 –> 00:02:34,230
seems scary and you’re beginner you

62
00:02:34,230 –> 00:02:35,700
really shouldn’t try it the middle the

63
00:02:35,700 –> 00:02:38,069
room first what you can do is press your

64
00:02:38,069 –> 00:02:40,519
back against a wall and have it home

65
00:02:40,519 –> 00:02:43,829
what I do is I measure about one form

66
00:02:43,829 –> 00:02:48,299
and I put my hands back same concept

67
00:02:48,299 –> 00:02:50,640
downward dog legs walk your hands and

68
00:02:50,640 –> 00:02:52,940
look between the thumbs lift one leg

69
00:02:52,940 –> 00:02:57,299
roll hip down really strong power in the

70
00:02:57,299 –> 00:03:00,900
hips and then just lift up and you have

71
00:03:00,900 –> 00:03:03,299
this nice wall here and you can play

72
00:03:03,299 –> 00:03:06,620
bring both legs you can bend your knees

73
00:03:06,620 –> 00:03:09,389
you can play with coming away from the

74
00:03:09,389 –> 00:03:14,150
wall look up gotta use your belly mm-hmm

75
00:03:14,150 –> 00:03:16,410
