Some people find Pasasana a breeze, but some of us are still trying to grow our arms longer so the fingers can join up. Of course it’s not about sticking your fingers in Miracle Grow, but about rotation in the torso and shoulders. Our man in Thailand is also working on Pasasana and kindly emailed me this link http://tinyurl.com/7jmt5xc to a You Tube tutorial on using the wall to open the upper body in the twist and to help try and get the heals down.
As I went to the local Shala, which was quiet this morning, when Pasasana time came round I decided to try the wall out first before doing the posture. Results, the first side was still finger touch, but the second side was a much stronger bind and although the heals didn’t touch down, they were going down, so I think it’s worth persisting with, though probably not at a more traditional Shala.
I found the half thickness block in the Shala’s toy cupboard, 3, 2, 1, then drop back and up from the half block, a 12mm block, 12mm between me and the floor, why is that mentally so far away still?
