Look What I Can Do!

I love it when I ask a student to try something in class and they are able to do it. They get so excited and usually say "I didn't know I could do that!" This happened to me in class a couple of weeks ago when I tried flying crow, but my response was "Oh, shit!" Since I've improved my upper body strength I decided recently that I'd try astavakrasana. This has been one of my yoga goals for a long time. Tea Leoni does the pose in the movie Spanglish and I thought it was hot. I could actually do it! Only for a couple seconds at first, but I'm getting better at it. I also tried one called bound equestrian, but I'm going to have to really work on that one. Check out the photos.
Bound full lotus. I saw this one on the web on Sunday and I have no idea if I'm doing it correctly.
Flying crow.

Astavakrasana. Yippeee!
