Again a video on urdhva dhanurasna. The last one was in Sept 09, more than 1 month back.
What has changed so far?
I am able now to drop back while my arms are stretched over the head. I started this in Mumbai. I had not enough space in my room to bring the arms via the sides over the head.
First I messure with my fingertips how far I arched back. When the finger tips can touch the calves the back should be arched enough. Then I take my hands in prayer position in front of the chest. Interesting is, that the hands can help to push the chest a bit more downwards. Then I stretch my arms. I am still full in control of the movement. Then I drop back.
When filming the performance is always a bit different. Nevertheless I think I could do the whole process a bit slower. I should give my body time to relax into tho pose.
No attempts were done to come up. Ah. This I should change. I needn't judge when I do not come up. But a tiny attempt, yes, this should be good. Next time.
And I see that I've lost a bit of weight. This helps also. May I remain so slim.
Time for a cup of tea........for me and my ill boyfriend.
