Alice Practices Yoga

My thumb has recovered and although it's not 100% at its original top form, it's good enough to resume my yoga practice. I was thinking. Instead of having bits and pieces of my notes and routine scribbled everywhere, I'm making the notes right here in my blog.

Here's what I plan to do for the latest routine:

Poses 1 to 4 are held for 5 long breaths unless otherwise stated. To be done twice a week.
1. Up Dog
2. Bow (for 10 long breaths)
3. Supported Bridge on One Block
4. Seated Easy Twist
The above opens up the chest, hips and back. Then continue with the following:

Poses 5 to 9 and are held for 10 long breaths; done on one side and then repeated on the other.
5. Cow Face
6. Ankle to Knee
7. Compass Prep
8. Compass
9. Split with Block under Hip

Poses 10 to 11 are held for 5 minutes on each side.
10. Pigeon - hold for 5 minutes on each side
11. Bound Angle

And finally...
12. Reclining Goddess

IMPORTANT: DO NOT HOLD YOUR BREATH.
