As I wrap up my two month long side bending study and currently create back bending choreography, here is an example of last week's fascination, three poses to ease into one big side body pose, compass pose. In Sanskrit it is called parivrtta (twisting) surya (sun) yantrasana (meditation diagram.) A perfect pose for last weekend's Summer Solstice celebrations where watching the fiery sun dance across the ball room of the blue umbrella sky was the main event.
