We began in the variation flat on your back, grabbing your shins from underneath. Next she had us but a vertical brick underneath our feet and observe our groins and hips. Then she has us roll a blanket (can be done on a thinly rolled mat as well) and put it under our tailbone with the feet up on the blanket. We stayed in each variation for a few minutes and observed the openness or lack of openness in our groins and hips. We were about to come up when she asked us to do it with no support to feel what the props had done to our pose. As I laid flat in Supta Baddha Konasana it was as if I was in a different body. My thighs went so close to the floor!! I experienced immense freedom in my groins and hips. It was so freeing and different I felt a sense of bewilderment and fear that made me question if I was residing in my own body. I was SO open, so surrendered I had to double check my ego structure - am I still ME? That is the power of the practice and genius teaching.
There is nothing like studying with an Iyengar. I am grateful every single day to be walking this earth with masters.
