Question: In the fullest part of the posture, a strong flexible person can come up high and palms end up facing a bit forward. To keep the palms stay facing the floor, the shoulders have to rotate downward.
Answer: No rotation. Hands/palms always facing the floor. Easier for us inflexible types. Flexible students always want to turn palms towards the mirror and bring arms back more.
Arms don’t go too far back when done the right way.
Q: A student says Full Locust is painful because she feels pressure on her pubic bone, rather than the hips. I would imagine that this may be a common problem for some women depending on their bone structure. Advice?
A: Yes, I have had students with this complaint. They were very thin. Have her put a folded towel (not too thick) under her hip bones for a few classes and see if that helps.
