Fundamentals

Moved on to Prasarita Padottanasana A, B, C, D and Parsvottanasana to close out the fundamental positions this week. Remembering the sequence in tandem with the breath flow and stabilizing the body posture is a task! Every time I feel I've learnt one vinyasa well, I end up faltering on another. No wonder it's recommended… Continue Reading

Callahan

Great day out with the kids. Hit Callahan State Park for a short hike. Getting them out of the house was probably the toughest part ! Today's hike was also a test run before we take them on a longer hike next weekend. The 8 mile Skyline trail at Middlesex fells should be a challenging… Continue Reading

Replied to:IndieWeb podcast club

Love the idea! Essentially I guess this falls into the bigger picture of organically building 'Indiweb groups' which gets people more engaged in discussions around the open-web (and otherwise!) and would be a welcoming segway for those who are already on the verge of taking that step! in reply to: IndieWeb podcast club …like a… Continue Reading

Workflow logic

While responding to one of Tantek's post today I realized I had to tweak my publishing workflow to pick 'the' link I was responding to. Should possibly consider using Colin's Dom method to fetch article meta...Srikanth Perinkulam Continue Reading

Moving on to the fundamentals

Was introduced to Padangusthasana, Padahastasana followed by Trikonasana A and Trikonasana B today. Called for a bit of stability and a lot of focus! I seem to have a got a hang of the Sun Salutations. I did catch myself doing a few mistakes, but guess that's good. Was in sync with Miss Me for… Continue Reading

Replied to:Taipei Traffic

That anomaly grows exponentially with the density of traffic :). You could barely go fast with so many vehicles around you and the thrill of scraping past the other vehicles keeps you hyper alert! I'm eagerly looking forward to driving back in India later this year, after four years here in the US. Wonder if… Continue Reading

Sun Salutations B

Up at 04:30am and had ample time to get ready. Did a dry runthrough of the sequence with Miss Me just before we left home and that provedto be pretty useful. Today’s class was much better in terms of execution.Practiced Sun Salutations A for about eight times. Kate then walked me throughSun Salutation B thrice… Continue Reading

#778: What the Falcon’s Up With Qatar?

The power dynamics in the middle east, the unending civil unrest in Syria, the recent spike in terrorist activities in London and Paris, ..and a ton of other things that go unreported...There's so much negative force playing in the air! Around 20 people are displaced forcefully from their homes every minute..This is insane! We are… Continue Reading

Learning to breathe

First ashtanga class at Down Under Yoga and it felt SO FREAKING GOOD! Started off with a short chant and dived straight into Sun Salutations A. The first few rounds felt pretty straight forward. But then pretty quickly I found it really hard to keep track of my breathing and the sequence. I was asked… Continue Reading
