Todays practice, Basic framework plus Lotus Sequence and some adaptions

Nice practice today, playing with the routine a little, feeling more and more comfortable adapting the basic daily framework.

The fixed daily structure is in Block capitals, and where I've adapted it in italics
The alternating floating sequence of the day is in Red


TADASANA subroutine
A few different hasta variations, twists and a little backbending
PRISHTANJALI
PURNA UTTRANASANA
Added a dropback

Added in Parassaritta Padottanasana and Uttita Padangustasana sub routine here as I knew I'd be doing the Lotus sequence and thought it might be a good idea.
Did some Godasana variations as I'm working on Hanumanasana

SURYNAMASKARA lead in including a three to six breath handstand
PASCHIMOTASANA

Extra jump back and through here

Added in a Maha mudra here as a prep pose for the Lotus sequence and because I like it so much.

LOTUS SEQUENCE (todays alternating sequence)

108.ardhapadmasana 109. padmasana 110. utpluti 111.
baddhapadmasana 112. matsyasana 113. urdhvapadmasana 114.
suptapadmasana-simhasana dynamic sequence 115. garbhapindasan

JUMP BACK lead in (don't get many jump backs now so try to do this one lifting up from dandasana)

APANASANA (prep. pose 1)
URDWA-PRASARITA-PADA-HASASANA (prep pose 2)
DWIPADAPITAM (prep pose 3)

SARVANGASANA Dropped this because I already covered headstands in Lotus
SIRSASANA

SARVANGASANA
UTTANA MAYURASANA added chakrasana out (very very neat and controlled lately, perhaps because of all the jalahandra)

MAHA MUDRA
BADHA KONASANA
PADMASANA
PRANAYAMA/MEDITATION
Some chanting of the Yoga sutras

Took just over 90 minutes
