Akarna Dhanurasana A (Advance B)

Karna means the ear. The prefix ‘A’ express the sense of near to, towards. Dhanu means a bow. 
The lifting foot is pulled up till the heel touches the ear as an archer pulls the bow-string. This asana practice is full of grace and makes the legs muscle very flexible and helps to move the bowels. 

Typical morning in mysore for ashtangi.

That either makes me an artist, or a person have very poor taste.
