What I learned from learning dropping back into urdhva dhanurasana

Years ago when I saw the first time someone dropping back into urdhva dhanurasana I thought that this wasn't possible for me anymore due to my age (now 50). I'm so lucky to have a yoga teacher who didn't care about my age. I worked on this pose, or was brought to work on it, however. Till I did it I doubted that I would be able to do it. A limiting thought? Surely.

The quality of your thoughts are important, I read in the book "Money is my friend" by Phil Laut.
"...increasing your wealth is a matter of increasing the quality of your thoughts", Phil writes on page 7.
Yes, my job is after 4 months so "difficult", that I start working on alternatives when the project will be finished next year at the end of March. I know that it is important not to limit myself: I am not too old for anything. I will have fun with earning money.

The book that I am reading on money is a spiritual book, I highly recommend it: title see above.

Time to do yoga, time to exercise my mind being focused. Time to improve my thoughts: I can drop back, I will also be able to come up. Hahahaha.

hi Ursula
i haven't visited your blog in ages, sorry. been a bit self involved. and now i have access problems. too much drama. however, today i thought of you as i took a picture of my utkatasana, thinking how this is one of your favorites to photograph. i can't post it, though, because of zee problems. i read that book by Laut. it is indeed a good one.

Dear Arturo,
But this is absolutely OK for me when we are busy from time to time.

Your life is exciting as you are in China. It is always better to live than to read.

We long-term practitioners, long-term bloggers won't loose contact.

Much money, much fun, good practices

Inspiring teachers can bring you the belief that poses like dropback are possible. I still cannot do it, but I no longer think I never will.

Have a nice weekend, hope the Bavarians win and Wolfsburg lose :-)

Hi Kev,
When I can do it, you can do it, too.
You are on the right way.

The Bavarian lost. ihhhhh. hahahaha.

You can do it anytime you feel like, still you can ask a expert for the best time to be on the safer side. Ofcourse, dropback is possible and very helpful too..

all the best
