On back bending

It feels as if I progress. I also think that I understood what to do when bending backwards. For instance it's most important to have strong legs, to stretch upwards, to lift the chest. Yet yesterday I went through my back bending pictures on my asana blog and I couldn't make out much progress within the last 5 years. It looks as if nothing has happened.

Yesterday was not the day to write a critical analysis. The picture above got on Explore on flickr, which is seldom and shows appreciation. I enjoyed the attention.

Today is another day. I plan to do more back bending. Half of the year is over. Till the end of the year I want to focus on back bending. Let's enjoy the ride......

Savour the journey as you simply move into the posture. Sometimes all we get for doing something is who become in the process. :)

Thanks for your comment. I love the aspect you're mentioning: It's important who we become in the process. This is more important than the accomplishment of any asana.

If you don't mind I'll make a blog post out of it.
