Impressive, you are undoubtedly a very flexible man. That must take a lot of training.

I am just slightly concerned that in some of them you might be damaging your nuts.

Don't worry, we used to do all those stretches warming up for Martial Arts.

That particular posture above took me a long time to get right, this not as easy as it looks.

Nice!

I would only comment on your Salamba Sarvagasana(sp).

It looks as if you're not completely aligned. Make sure the tips of your toes, your knees, hips, stomach and tops of your shoulders form one straight line.

Here's an article by BKS Iyengar on the posture (halfway down the page)

http://www.lifepositive.com/Body/yoga/sirsasana.asp#salambasarvangasana

There's a low resolution photo of the posture, but it's enough to see what you can do to improve.

I reconize this one.  That's the "stealth" pose. :)  A useful skill for teaching and other similar situations.

  It's never a pose, this more like a posture to increast strength balance and general awareness.

   Yes thats true, I think I'll skip this particular posture, I practice it some-time it does cause a lot of pain.

Oof. It shouldn't (duh, thanks Sherlock.). I would definitely stop doing it until you figure out what's going wrong...

Do you have a teacher, or are you learning alone?

Either way, I would highly recommend Light on Yoga by BKS Iyengar. It has some of the best descriptions and highly detailed photos of almost every posture, including the intermediary steps to get into them, and he was an alignment freak, so it is very good for the basics.

Having looked a little closer, it looks like your problem may be originating with your chinlock. It has to be quite firm in order for the spine to straighten properly, which would alleviate any pain you may be feeling in your back.

I would try doing the posture without the mat and see if it's any easier.

 Ah, true.
 Do I have a teacher? No not anymore, I did initially. Yoga has many different branches so you can imagin what its like trying this that and the other. The one I practise is called assan, it does take a lot of time and effort.

  I don't recommend that particular posture with-out a mat, but it does help being guided by a good teacher.
  As far as I know yoga is a philosophy and should be treated as such, it often gets confused with gymnastics or some sort of sport.

  Do you practice yoga. ::)

    Thanx, it takes a lot of effort and time even pain intially. It requires a lot of strength, flexibility, concentration and balance. Once you manage the basics, you can practice it where-ever and when ever.

Personally, I never use mats because they're more of a modern practice. Also, I'm cheap.

As far as I know yoga is a philosophy and should be treated as such, it often gets confused with gymnastics or some sort of sport.

I think, like any belief system, Yoga must be taken with salt. Does it help develop a balanced mind, healthy body and a general calm? I think so. Does it eventually lead one to transcend to some other, higher existence? Err... no.

No, dreadful stuff.  ;D

      Good point, it can also cause a lot of injury if not careful. With the Salamba Sarvagasana(sp) it's beneficial to use a mat because the Cervical curvature is under a lot of strain. This is'nt the case with most other postures. Like I said their are lots of branches in yoga. Sometimez it helps to read through a Alexander workbook, loadz of diagramz, tips and clues ect ect. O.o
