Favourite Asana
Triyang Mukha Eka Pada Pascimottanasana – Three Limbs Facing Intense West Stretch Pose

Why do you like this asana / what does it bring you?
Triyang Mukha Eka Pada teaches me patience. It can take a year before both sitting bones stay on the floor. Your ego wants to move into the forward bend, but that is allowed only when both sitting bones touch the ground. And then when you get there and start bending forward, you notice that your sitting bones immediately want to leave the ground again. This asana teaches me again & again that every moment is different, nothing ever stays the same and that I need to focus on what my body is trying to tell me in the present moment.
