Drop-backs feeling impossible?
Not anymore

Before you’ve experienced your first drop-back they seem impossible. There is a lot going on in a short amount of time. Dropping back can bring up fear. Standing up provides its own technical challenges. However, when you get it right, they can be incredibly powerful and inspiring.

Like any other posture, there are techniques that you can apply that can help you move forward in this complicated set of movements. Some are big changes and sometimes they are subtle changes that make a big difference.

I will clearly point out what the most common mistakes are as well as the most common solutions for those mistakes. You may be surprised to find that some of the most popular instructions may be working against you.
