Welcome back. Thank you, Juna and Sarah, Matt, for being here. And so we'll take a look at Janu Shirsasana, usually translates as head-to-knee pose. So watch as our friends go into it with their left leg forward. I'm going to do my best to back out of the way. Notice the relative placement of their foot. Notice their hip and knee. And then watch how they go in. Each one has their own kind of unique way. Beautiful. So pretty. And then as they've settled in to their shapes, just notice the relative placement on how their knee falls towards the earth, Sarah's and Matt's. The relative relationship of the extended straight leg to the earth. You can really see like if you notice underneath the back of Matt's knee and underneath of Sarah's and underneath of Juna. I'm not sure if you can see that. And where they've chosen to put their hands. Where their head maybe is on their leg or not. Like noticing where Juna's head lands, where Matt's head lands. And the roundness of their back. Beautiful, all of you. And so like the posture, the asanas, the asana gets to find usually as to sit. These shapes are opportunities to sit within ourselves. And so if we're trying to sit within ourselves based on how it might look on the outside, we miss some of the opportunity. Thank you so much each of you. Thank you for being here. Let us know what you discover.
