(yoga) on the beach

It is almost a summer day, 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and Torquay beach offers a few hours of solace. I forget about the PhD and other usual problems; even the pain in my leg seems to disappear. A yoga practice by the ocean is for one of the blissed moments in life; the clear calm (cold) waters of the Southern Ocean are quite attractive, especially after getting used to the cold and grey Atlantic. Returning to the car, my left leg was hurting again and the ankle became very swollen.

My "Axis Mundi" sequence: tadasana, backbend, sirsasana and variation, adho mukha svanasana

Point Danger: Earth and Water

An energizing swim in cold waters

The last backbend on the beach: chakrasana
