“Mastery Combines a balance of Science and art. Knowledge of science is like the colors on an artist’s palette – the greater the knowledge the more colors available. Body is the canvas and Asans are the art we create. ” Patanjal
I never took biology so seriously as I am taking now. I am impressed how technically you can go deeper in to the poses. An example is doing Paschimottansan with tight Hamstring all the while but hopefully by applying these techniques I will be able to do better.
- Lift your patella up and engage Quadriceps so the opposite muscle which is hamstring will relax and you will be able to straighten the the legs without bending the knees.
- By engaging Udayan Bandha psoas Major muscle will get contracted and it will release your buttocks (Gluteus Maximus) which will give space to go deeper in the pose.
