It’s been a while since I shared a progress pic!
So this is a 2/3 years progress of bird of paradise.
Biggest difference for me is that in the first attempt I was not able to hold it more than 1 second as you can see from the blurr in my hair.
My hip was not open enough and I was just trying to do it without really know what was the point of it.
The point when you do an Asana it not for it to look like the one you see in books or in class, but to feel in the correct way.
In this case for example it’s a lot about the hip, so there is no point on trying to straighten your leg if your hip is not open enough (like I am doing the the 2015 photo)!
