The hamstrings provide strong, controlled support in our forward folds. We pull together what we have learned about the core, ribs, pelvis, and now hamstrings into our explorations of Pyramid, Standing Splits, and Krounchasana (Heron Pose). You will feel supple and elongated.
I agree with all these comments. Felt renewed after shavasana, and practiced a few times already on a rainy day in NJ. My teachers Lydia Zamorano and Lyndsey Williams introduced me to the concept of tensegrity, practicing interoception through a geodesic lens. Or we build these poses step by step and then we become more three dimensional. I have just a basic understanding of this, but you probably know it better.

David G- it sounds like you are very much on the right path! Every time you step on the mat, more is learned. It’s really the nervous system learning itself through the mirror of an introspective practice 😇
