Pashasana preparation

Pashasana is the first pose of the second series.
1.The feet are flat on the floor, this means that the ankle between upper feet and shin bone has to be rather small. I usually separate the feet from the hands a bit further as usual when I do downward facing dog to exercise this.
2. The second challenge is the twist. This can be exercised as well when doing parivrtta prsva konasana. To bind behind the back intensifies the twist.
3. Third crucial point is the weight (less is better).

I rolled back today. I usually have a blanket under my heels. Sometimes I fold it 3 times, sometimes 4 times. At the end of the year it should be possible to have the flat feet on the floor. Let's see.
