Chakra Bhandasana - Grab heels in a month backbend challenge
If you remember, this project came about from seeing this video by Jen René Peg Mulqueen and Michael Joel Hall.
Watching this back I'm thinking, Michael isn't dropping back any closer than I am here
I think I might even be coming in a little deeper...
and yet he's still managing to reach in and grab his legs....although with a little help
My plan is to face the wall and rock forward and use that in place of Peg and friend
In the second part of the video Peg drops back to a full yoga block then spider walks her fingers towards her ankles and grabs them that way.
I've been working on dropping back much closer to the wall, looks like I'm still a couple of inches out...perhaps (wishful thinking she has a wider block than the books I'm using). I'm slightly amused by the part of my movie below where I put my feet nice and close to the block but by the time I've actually dropped back I've somehow shuffled them forward to where they are in this picture
