I don't care if it hurts, I want to have control, I want a perfect body, I want a perfect soul

In fact, I think he does it with everyone but I’m willing to bet that they just need some fine-tuning on the old drishti front. Luckily, through extensive abhyasa I have managed to obliterate all such pesky kleshas and can now offer you an exclusive sampling of our daily sun salute sequence; a ritual I have readily adopted in order to restrain the fluctuations of the mind (not to mention my rotator cuffs) and emerge as a…

Calm,

Fitter,

Healthier AND more productive ME!

To begin,

1. Samasthiti – Pragmatism not Idealism

2. On an inhale…Utthita Hastasana in Tadasana – No chance of escape

3. And exhale…Uttanasana – Concerned, but powerless

4. Breathe in…Ardha Uttanasana – Will not cry in public

5. GASP!…Chaturanga – Tires that grip in the wet (shot of baby strapped in back seat)

6. Who needs oxygen?…Urdhva Muhka Svanasana - No more microwave dinners and saturated fats

7. And out…Adho Muhka Svanasana (take 5 breaths here) - The ability to laugh at weakness

8. Draw some pollutants in…Ardha Uttanasana – An empowered and informed member of society

9. Give it an appropriate exit…Uttanasana - Still cries at a good film, Still kisses with saliva

10. Anyone for a little ujjayi?…Utthita Hastasana in Tadasana - No longer empty and frantic

To end,

11. Samasthiti – Fond but not in love

Now,

Repeat x 3 times - Slower and more calculated…

Namaste

 

And for your viewing pleasure, I present Radiohead – “Fitter, Happier”!!
