Tick Tock Tick Tock

The Practice: 12.18.11

Ticktocks – Viparita Chakrasana from Urdhva Dhanurasana. This peak pose is a breakdown of 3 accessible poses... Down dog, Handstand and Urdhva Dhanurasana. When you put the 3 together in a sequence, its a whole lot more intense and fun! We worked with the theme of Lila - Divine Play. Have fun with this. Don't take yourself too seriously. Remember to look at it in component parts, so its not too overwhelming. Enjoy!

Darren Rhodes in Viparita Chakrasana... AMAZING!
