"Breathing, breathing, deep breathing, breathing in, breathing out.." he said - repeating monotonously.. and that in a posture where one might last approximately 30 nanoseconds, okay I manged a bit longer then this.. Postures like "the Fish" or Matsya Asana, coming down from the "Shoulderstand" Hala Asana via the Sarvangasana "the Plow", pretty breathtaking stuff, this way I found out what hamstrings are for and that I must have got an iron rod instead!

However, the Akarna-Dhanura-asana "shooting Bow" pose is way more demanding, so is the Ugraasana "Noble Pose", all muscles come into play, like the nutcracker suite demands the out most from the ballet dancer and the Veerabadhra Asana or Warrior Pose II still get's me...seconds can become hours!

Well, started this morning with a couple of sun salutations and ended the session with a deep and relaxing Savasana "Corpse Pose", where nearly the entire class fell asleep - ah' well ...and started another beautiful day!
