Rodney Yee. Sometimes you just have to keep pushing and trying no matter how much you want to stop. I can often have the determination of a pit bull terrier. Day 19. I can say that hope rains eternal for me right now. I've witnessed hard cold proof of my efforts. I was so strong in my practice that I was able to master the Urdhva Dhanurasana, or wheel pose, otherwise know as the back bend. With my eyes looking at the wall behind me I felt like jumping for joy. Instead, I put all the energy in to propelling my chest and hips forward to futher open up my heart chakra and just breathed into the pose to deepen in. OK, so my form could improve a lot but I'm completely in a back bend. I'm so juiced about this! A huge part of me can't believe that I've come this far. I feel like celebrating or something. I think I will too. I'll celebrate by doing 10 Urdhva Dhanurasana's in a row! Tomorrow is day 20. I can't wait to get back to my mat!
