Today's challenge pose was pincha mayurasana or feathered peacock pose.
My arms and back are not strong enough yet to support me in this inversion. I ended up with my head on the ground, doing a forward roll, and laughing.
We also worked our way into "Wild Thing" pose. I love the name and I love look of the completed pose. The idea of being arched and open is...sigh. I can't describe the relief that comes with reaching Wild Thing. Check out this video. I'm at state one which is basically a modified side plank (vasisthasana). My arms and abs start shaking just at the thought of side plank.
