Eka Pada Sirsasana explained…

Following on from the pelvic “tilt”
I am like a dog at a bone with this, right??? 😉😆😅
But it MATTERS🙆🙆🙆
THIS will make a big big difference to your practice.🙇

I am posting a picture of me in Eka Pada Sirsasana (One Leg Behind Head pose)
The point of this post is for you to see my pelvic tilt.
The 2 poses are 2 months apart.
I didn’t DO anything new strength-wise, to bring my leg to my chin.
I honestly could NOT make that leg move closer to my leg in January. I was 100% stuck as far as I could go.🙈🙈

…..until I started thinking that the solution lay elsewhere… and not in the legs.
The solution lay in the pelvic tilt.
In order for me to get my leg closer to my face… I needed to rotate my pelvis upwards and inwards.
Like a cheese curl? 😌
And it is utilising my Uddiyana Bandha BIG TIME (lower abdominal firing) 🔥🔥🔥

Being able to rotate your pelvis upwards and inwards is going to help you to release your lower spine in Savasana.
Its going to help you to correctly practice Warrior II without straining your lower back and forcing you to “hang” in your joints.
Its going to help you to forward bend over your straddle spits into Upavistha Konasana A.

I know it might be a weird action and something you are unfamiliar with. But trust me on this one, you need to find the action and the rotation.🙇😘
