Also a stiff person can be flexible. This is the good news.
Every body has another consistency. There are stiff bodies and very flexible bodies. My body is rather stiff. So when I bend backwards, it looks as if nothing happens. The body doesn't curve. Gravity isn't enough to get deep into a pose. Yet when I have resistance I can arch my body much more. I need strength to get that deep into a backbending asana, yet it's possible.
Today is Friday and primary was on the schedule. I almost slept in today. Almost. I was in the studio on time and had a lovely practice. What else can I wish.
