Also known as Padahastasana.
I’ve been practicing Bikram Yoga for the past 6 weekends and I can not get over this analogy. At times I thought I heard it wrong, until I “googled” it.
In fact it is part of the script for their 26 poses.
I always asked myself…
Now thanks to Bikram Yoga Vancouver now I know. I still don’t get why it is supposed to look like a Japanese ham sandwich, or why Japanese even make ham sandwiches.
My Thoughts during practice go from:
– Did I hear Japanese Ham Sandwich?
-What is that?
-Did I really just hear that?
-Why would Japanese make ham sandwiches, When there is plenty of wonderful Japanese food to make?
– So i’s suppose to smash myself to look like a sandwich?
– I still don’t get the imagery.
I think it may take my mind to stop wandering in the class until then, this is a great find from the internet.
In case you were wondering what the 26 poses are, this is a great image series of the poses.
Although on Sunday I felt like this. But managed to remain in the room for the entire 90 mins.
Til next weekend Bikram!
