Myth: Everyone Should Do Dropbacks Before Starting Second Series

September 20, 2022
Doing dropbacks before beginning second series in Ashtanga makes sense only if the student has a comfortable steady full wheel pose. If someone is struggling with urdhva dhanurasana then it makes more sense to help them evolve their backbend rather than push them into dropbacks.

About David - Yoga Anatomy Presenter

david keil yoga anatomyThis website is about delivering yoga anatomy to the yoga community in a simple and understandable way.
