I keep practicing my drop back bend, and it brings me so much joy. Now i have to focus more on Pranayama and Meditation.
Thank you again for sharing joy, happiness and awareness. I have changed, thanks to you.

Parampara... always respect the people that Put you on the path and look over you ..this man Balu , to me represents yoga without ego , celebrity and fan clubs , despite great knowledge and skill as a yogi.
He watched me for twenty days, two classes a day ,and knew what I needed.
I had an injury but it didn't hinder me as the whole trip was about opening my back .. to the point where I was doing 3 unaided dropbacks and back up in succession.
It must be noted an osteo once said I could never do things like sports without constant re alignment( let alone extreme backbends!), which held me back ,and I would modify up until quite recently ... words can be powerful ( choose wisely!), he was also the one that invited me all the way into the middle of second series,thank you my friend ,namaste 😊🙏🏻
So I finally made it to Goa- my flight was obviously 15 years late cause I am surrounded by 20smthing Russian rasta people covered in tatoos and it smells like weed everywhere (including restaurants) but I am here for this GEM of a teacher: Balu! He is super gentle, sweet and determined. I told him about my herniated disk - he warned me to take it easy, and then just like that put me in Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (King Pigeon) and helped me drop back- I guess this is the prescription for hernias 🤣 !!! Forever thankful to my friends @sankalpasicily for bringing him to Sicily (PS If you love ashtanga you should follow them since they are bringing amazing teachers to Sicily!)
