#42DaysOfMaat: Day 39
Law: “I am humble”
Pose: Scorpion

To be humble is not to be passive, it is a quality that is a reflection of balance in oneself. Humble does not mean invincible, but so strong that muscle need not be shown.

Begin in same position as when you enter Maat Headstand, except bound your hands together to create a wall in front of the head on the floor (Do NOT rest your head on your hands). After walking the feet in, inhale and lift the knees up and in to the chest. Exhale as you extend the legs straight up. Inhale as you place the palms flat to the mat and push the hips forward, then exhale as you arch the back, bend the knees in more, and release the toes downward. Inhale as you press the forearms down to the mat and lift the head and neck up to look straight ahead, then exhale relaxing into the position. Inhale, then turn your head to the left as you exhale, inhale it back to center, then exhale as you turn head over your right shoulder. To come out of the position, inhale head back to center then exhale head down to the mat. Place bound hands back in front of the head, then inhale the legs straight up, exhale as you bring the knees back in to the chest. Inhale, then exhale the toes down to the mat, inhale up high on the toes, then exhale as you bend the knees, release them down to the mat, and rest in Child Pose or Heruamkhet

Can’t WAIT to work the handstand in, thank you @memphisyogi for showing how I may practice against the wall :D Check out what @justingnelson has for us tomorrow and join in!

#42DaysofMaat: Day 20
Law: “I hold purity in high esteem”
Pose: Edjo (Cobra)

No dilution or embellishment necessary. Cherish what is still pure.

Lay flat on the mat on your front with the chin resting on the back of the palms. Bring each flat palm to the mat underneath the the shoulders. Prepare to transfer the weight of your body in the heels of the hands then inhale as you straighten the elbows, raising the upper body up off the mat. Open your chest through the shoulders and raise the eyes and chin up as you inhale, then relax the tops of the thighs toward the mat and the head and neck behind you as you exhale and arch the lower back. Practice Rule of Four Breathing in the pose before inhaling the head back up to look straight ahead and then bend the elbows to exhale the entire body back down to lay flat on the mat. Repeat 3 times, relaxing completely between attempts.
