As a beginner, most poses are still pretty difficult for me, but i caught on to this one quickly and i really enjoy it. It is nice to be able to read this article to make sure that i am getting the full benefit of the pose. Very insightful!

This was very helpful. Thank you for the in depth explanations. I could actually see how each body part should be doing in the pose.

How could you try to describe positions that are almost beyond understanding - when photos or diagrams would let someone learn your instructions?

pictures can be of great help for beginners like myself

JO

hi! I always consider breathing a vital component of a pose, as the breath guides and contains the movement.
Do we and how do we breathe in this pose?
thanks!

Yes, I agree too, Pictures of each pose and variations would be highly beneficial. :0)
