still dropping back

I never would have thought it, but it's true. It's a been a few months now, and I'm still dropping back into Urdhva Dhanurasana (Wheel). More importantly, I'm loving it. In fact, I prefer it to coming up from the floor these days.

My heels lift on the way down but I'm okay with that. It seems like the options are heels lifting or, grounded heels turning in. I tried grounding my heels and allowing them to roll in, just to see what it was like. Didn't like it. It didn't feel good in my hips. At least when my heels are up, I can keep my hips rolling in.

It's a nice change when something in my practice that used to be terrifying becomes actual fun.
