It was a tough but awesome Day Three.
We spent most of the first half of the day discussing how to arrange your class sequence around a specific intention. So, if you set an intention of courage, you might sequence in balancing poses since it requires some courage to execute them without down dogging your face into the floor, bleeding out your nose, and needing a medic to whisk your broken ass away from class, never to show your shamed, shattered face again.
We discussed how to lead up to different "Peak Poses" (the tougher ones) in a sequence so that the flow accommodates the tough pose, and prepares the student strength-wise for what is coming next. Then someone mentioned the "Bird of Paradise." Well what in the world is that pose I asked? A couple of my fellow trainees jumped right up to demonstrate this:
