Day 11

After spending most of the day sitting in chairs in meetings, my back welcomed the opportunity to explore several variations of shalabasana during the Day 11 Aligning and Refining Backbends practice.  Elise Lorimer introduced several interesting arm variations intended to open the shoulders during the standing poses portion of the practice.  Lorimer seems to love one of my least favorite asanas, utkatasana (chair pose), weaving it in to nearly every sequence she has led during the Yoga Journal 21 Day Challenge and providing me with multiple opportunities to practice non-aversion.
