Hi Vahid Great question! Personally, I love half moon because, like many balancing postures, it helps with focus and really encourages me to be present with my body and my breath in the moment. I also broke my left foot over a year ago and I find that this particular posture really helps re-strengthen all the little muscles in my feet that were weaker due to injury. How about you?
Hi Sarah Beston, Im sorry about your left foot! I wish you fast & full re-strengthening! Regarding half moon, I enjoy the mental silence and focus too!... (Well, since it's not an easy posture, I secretly admire myself and take it as a little achievement) I also like how I feel grounded and balanced through my standing leg, while at the same time, I am enjoying the sense of flying and freedom through the rest of my floating body. I guess some sort of duality, maybe. Thanks for asking, Namaste :)
Sarah, I'm loving your classes! I especially appreciate how much you remind us to link the breath with movement. For me, nothing is more effective at shutting off the chatter of the mind. At the end of your classes I realize I have been totally focused and my mind is (relatively!) quiet. Thank you and keep the classes coming!
