After a week of "super clubs" in Ibiza my son busts his version of Eka Pada in a "Trapstar" hat and "Nike Huarache" trainers. While the attire is pretty cool, it is not recommended with this yoga pose. :-)
I have never heard the tip about taking the calf flesh out before-nor the mention of lifting the thighs-Kino always give useful information in her short clips. It took me a long time to get the hand/foot grip correct and my feet most definitely do not touch the floor ;-)
The Yoga Show will be held at London Olympia again this year. It's a great opportunity to try out different styles of yoga and buy yoga books, props, etc.
I would recommend choosing which workshops you would like to attend (this applies to the free ones) and getting yourself in the queue early, as these sessions get very busy and have restricted numbers. I would also recommend you are selective where you place your email addresses on show stands, unless you want to receive a lot of yoga emails ;-). Enjoy

As I have just started practising to the end of the intermediate series, I have been on the look out for some video clips. I came across Sri Pattabhi Jois teaching this section. Fascinating to watch and lovely to hear his calm, gentle voice teaching the practice. I hasten to add my version of the intermediate series vaguely resembles these. Yogis... practice, practice, practice!!!
