Sanskrit: Bakasana/Kakasana

*

  • Squat with your feet together and your knees opened out to the sides. Place your hands flat on the ground in front of you, spreading your fingers. Your elbows are bent and your torso leans forward. Find a focus point to assist your balance by looking down to the ground.
  • Lean further forward as you raise your heels off the ground so that you can rest your shins on the backs of your upper arms as near to your armpits as possible.
  • Raise your feet off the ground toward your buttocks as you lean your weight into your arms and hands. Round your spine as you do so by contracting your abdominal muscles and keeping your legs well tucked in. This will help you to achieve a feeling of lightness in the position. Raise your head slightly to help counteract the tendency to fall forwards.
  • Lastly, if you can, straighten your arms to balance. I can’t cos I’m ffffffffffffffffalling!
  • This is a very strong arm pose. I would rate it at 9/10.

    I know I’ve been neglecting my blog and have not been updating it lately. There’s a few things happening around me and to make matter worst, I am lack of blogging inspiration = zero blog post.

    Recently, I had a few trips to the clinic and thanks God, my blood pressure is back to normal. Ok, so this thing called Yoga actually works. Miracle! hehe…

    I have been absence from classes for almost two weeks now due to some tummy cramps, nausea feeling, weak body…. you named it, I’ve got it. Something very close to pregnancy sympton ;) . And NO! I’m not pregnant *sticking out tongue*

    Now that I’m finally recovered and my body is not that weak anymore, I’m back to my full swing, that is attending 4 classes a week. Good thing the package that I’ve signed up with Yoga Zone permit unlimited attendance. Which means I can go anytime, anyday, any class at my convenience. I have since familiarized myself with the instructors and know their field of expertise. For example, Jackie concentrate more on flexibility and Janet concentrate more on abs eventho both are conducting Hatha classes. Jackie’s class for me, that is for sure.

    Plank Posture

    I am not even sure if my arm is strong enough to hold myself in Plank or even downward dog. We’ll see about that.

    Ciao, ciao everyone. I’m off to my Yoga now. Namaste!
