Spring Blooming - part 5

Chiara M. Travisi - illustrated by Svenja Karstens

In Part 5 of the Spring blooming sequence, I am combining seated asanas with a supported back extension using a chair. In particular, the dorsal spine is hooked to the seat of the chair to create a nice support on which to rest the heart region as it opens and widens. The cervical spine too is maintained in an extended position to facilitate the anterior dorsal spine extension, and is well supported to avoid any compression in the neck. The sequence includes: upavistha konasana, parsva upavistha konasana (and a variation with one leg in marichyasana), marichyasana, janu sirsasana and trianga mukhaikapada paschimottanasana.


The variation of upavistha konasana with chair and bolster allows to hang the heart down, while the following parsvottanasana, upavistha konasana and parsva upavistha konasana with the rolled mat stimulate the back chest while releasing and elongating the posterior dorsal and cervical spine. Therefore, after a long series of extended asanas focused on chest opening, this part quietens the nervous system preparing to the following passive and pranayama practice.
