Happy UN International World Yoga Day today (June 21)
My Yoga Playlist today:
it’s an OPM (original Pilipino Music), written by Bienvenido Lumbera from the libretto of Rama Hari performed here live by Kuh Ledesma in the 80s (the arrangement could be updated a little; less ” synthetic electronic yamaha organ” and more real instruments… but i’m no expert 🙂 but maybe more violins and cello…)
The lyrics are poetry, grand and gentle at the same time — it’s Bien Lumbera:
and the pose featured here is one of my favorite poses.
inversion poses decompress my back: in the morning, upon waking up, i ease very slowly to three inversion poses… alternating with dead bugs-crunches as a concession to cardio, then end with child’s pose. i don’t do the standing up poses because i’m still asleep while doing the inversion poses, don’t judge me boo-hoo; tulog pa ako sa plough 20 breaths (still asleep while in plough pose).
This is for decompressing and pulling out the microscopic needles in the spine (see previous posts as a background on why i needthese poses –just type “my favorite pose” in the search box to see the previous posts on this)
then shoulderstand, then deadbugs-crunches 30 reps lang, don’t judge me, at least meron…
back to plough 20 counts, shoulderstand, then pindasana or embryo pose then upside down lotus pose, then a little plough then last set of deadbugs-crunches 30, then child’s pose…
and i’m still asleep then until coffee… don’t judge me, i’m not a book cover
