The daily practice was 3 hours of yoga asana focused on Back Bending. We would warm up practice a couple of standing back bending and proper counterbalancing poses. Then we would do 4 rounds of Surya Namaskara, each of them focusing on arching the lower back. We would then move on working asana such as Kapotasana, Eka Pada Raja Kapotasana, Shalambasana, Chakrasana, Chakrasana in Chakrasana...and then forward bending such as Halasana, Kurmasana, Pashimottanasana, Upavistha
Konasana and twists with are essential to realign the spine and avoid any pain or injuries Pasasana was my deepest nightmare.
Each pose was repeated for three rounds to give the body the time to understand and adjust, to gain strength and confidence, to focus on the breath, to try to go further. Not only that but also each asana was kept quite a long time...which was also incredibly challenging. Finally Savasana time arrived and it was a long Savasana and despite the easiness of the asana even then Acharya was making sure we would not fall asleep, which was quite hard not to.
