Holiday Practice – Urdhva Dhanurasana

Yesterday’s practice fed today’s time on the mat. A large morning since there were chores to do and meals to cook. Began with a supported Vipareeta Dandasana on rolled mattresses. As I stayed in the pose, I thought of the bench in the hall and my days on that backbender.

Worked on the dorsal region and elbows while watching the breath shapes in various asanas. Finally did a few reps of urdhva dhanurasana and vipareeta dandasana. Rusty there too.

Day’s end and I’m done! Evening was admissions duty at the institute and a long drive back home. One thing that stayed with me today was my daughter asking me how would I work on my elbow on my own when she was helping me with one of the early Vipareeta Dandasanas today.

  1. While you might feel rusty, you don’t exude it. What I see is natural looking and not forced. Soon you’ll be in the practice hall and your body will be ready to see what has or hasn’t changed during the last 3+ years. It’s exciting.
