The best teachers are the poses that you find challenging within your physical body. What does Urdhva Dhanurasana have to share for those who would rather not bend over backwards?
1. Honor your boundaries.
2. Strengthen your connection to the support of the Universe represented by your back body.
3. Patiently learn how to be visibly vulnerable as your allow your front body to open and lengthen.
4. When you feel stuck, pushing smarter not harder is the key.
