This just came out of nowhere and I had to stop myself from giggling in excitement like a kid as my hands carried on moving past my heels and clamped down around my ankles.
'though heady stuff I would gladly sacrifice the ankle grab for a smooth bind of the heel from the air without any of that fumblin' around. I do seem to land closer, perhaps it's coming.
Though I said it came our of nowhere, it's no doubt a result of all the Venki 'hang back' work courtesy of Boodiba, plus the extended Pranayama that I've been doing recently.
Pride cometh before a fall, they say. Full of myself from the ankle bind I moved on to walking in on Urdhava Dhanurasana. I was trying to get my hips up and straighten my legs more so I could touch my heels, lost my center of balance and it all went horribly wrong.
It actually sounds a lot worse than it was due to the floorboards. Back to the drawing board on that one.
