I had the deepest Kapotasana today that I have ever had. S was pulling my thighs forward. The Good Doc was taking my hands to my feet. Instead of feeling a pull in my triceps or in my hip flexors, I felt my back…BEND.
I know…it’s supposed to.
But I never thought it would.
It really bent where it has never bent before, and I had the sensation of closing up like a clamshell.
I know…this is desirable. This is what I have wanted. This is what everyone else is doing when they grab their heels, when they take their ankles. In fact, I am sure that what I experienced is quite a bit less than all that.
Yet it freaked me out.
I was terrified that I would break. Or something. I was terrified to breathe. I don’t know why.
Tomorrow, I want to try it again…with breathing.
Also – learning to jump into Bujapidasana is finally happening for real. I can jump into a very low, wide Tittibhasana. At least I can land, right? Now, I just need to get higher on my legs. There is time. It’s not going anywhere, but since I have been working at this for a while, I thought it was time to share.
