ReJoyce Yoga Cartoon: Dhanurasana
I've been practicing the Dharma Mittra Maha Sadhana, at home, for a while now. There is a section of the practice where you do Dhanurasana (Bow Pose). I dread this pose.
When I am in this pose I feel like the earth is reaching up with thorny vine fingers and wrapping it's hands around my legs, waist, chest and arms dragging me down. The earth whispers "just lay down."
I'm waiting for the day where I can do this pose with ease. Till then... I reach back for my ankles, breath in and lift my body off the ground and smile. Only two more sets and a mini-shavasana (Corpse Pose). Whew.
