Month of Shoulder Stand - Day 4

So I tried it, Shoulder stand without thinking about alignment too much.  Well, I tried anyway. I realized that I have to be ok with readjusting. I will collapse, so I will have to readjust. 

I do have to think about alignment. BKS Iyengar has been quoted as saying that God is on the midline of the body. Just like in meditation, we have to ensure that the body is in proper alignment. That alignment of the spine is the means for the travel of energy in the body. 

So here is my new goal - align the body without it being the focus.
