A Laghu like this



should not be followed by a drop-back that looks like this:



Oh, and Laksmi, this one's for you........I ought to call it "Timbeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrr..................!::



OK, you can smirk now, all you backbending prodigies.

Lauren, it is not the fault of your boobies. you need to open in your lower back and your hip flexors. do Paul Grilley's sleeping swan and swan, and please don't let Laksmi smite me for mentioning Paul Grilley's name (even though i think he is cute as a button!).

You know what your problem is when standing up from Urdhva D? That you are leading with your chin. Leave your head back, I repeat, LEAVE YOUR HEAD BACK. You'll be amazed at the difference.

Paul Grilley is a lazy fatass!

Hey, WTF have I been saying? HEAD BACK!!!! Watch my head! Watch it on MY BLOG!

Oh my god... do you know you have very little disks in your neck? Are you trying to break them? The weight should not be on your forehead. Move your chin to your chest and keep the balance. Don`t break your neck.

Pilar, if that is your real name, do you even KNOW what Laghu vajrasana is? You sound like a moron. I hope you're smarter than you sound.

Pilar said...

I was talking about your headstand (not laghu v). You`re doing it wrong, you`re breaking your neck. At least to me it looks like it.

Yoga Chickie said...

Well, Pilar, what you don't see is that I am no even ON my head. I pick my head up completely in headstand. Now, go back to your Iyengar classes.

Geez YC no need to insult. Pilar is not a native English speaker (my bet is Spanish, given the name and the wrong apostrophe key), so maybe she is coming across a bit harsh unintentionally. I don't think she was trying to upset or offend, in fact I think she was trying to help, she saw something that she thought was dangerous and decided to warn you about it. Is it such a bad thing even if she got it wrong?

I don't think Pilar is Spanish-speaking based on my stats info. I don't think Pilar's real name is Pilar either. I found Pilar's comments to be quite cutting and mean. I deleted another one that was even worse. I don't need to read people telling me how much I suck. I hear that in my own head quite enough.
