My penultimate practice in Maui — at least on this trip. I have to get back here one of these days!
Here is how I practiced floating to bakasana this morning. Even though you might think being three floors up would scare me, that incredible view was just so inspiring. I pretended the breeze was waiting just beyond the glass to catch me as I floated into crane pose, a transition that happens in Ashtanga’s second series. I used a trick I learned from Tim Miller, which was to take a huge pillow to dampen my fear of face-planting. In this case, I used one of the hotel room’s couch cushions.
I found that with this set-up, it was very calming to practice floating into bakasana.
So my husband is about done grilling our burgers for our picnic. I’ll catch you later. Mahalo!
