The other night I dreamed of locusts. Not really. I did dream of locust pose though. Salabhasana has never been a favorite of mine. All the shoving of the hands under the body and the smooshing of the face into the ground and the lack of elevation that I get. It doesn’t feel good to me.
In my dream I just popped up easefully into the full posture. No efforting, no smooshing. It was amazing. When I woke up and got on the mat I knew I had to include locust in my sequence – even though it might not look quite like that. And, trust me, it didn’t.
This gorgeous locust is from this site, which is not in English, but sure looks pretty.
