The Mystery of Prasarita

My handstand from Prasarita A isn’t quite perfect yet. Always, teacher has to / or I feel he has to help me pull my back up (or pull my back back?) so I can lift my legs up in the air into handstand. What I enjoy though is my landing–I feel my feet always falling into their perfect position, in perfect distance from each other, so much so that I can do B,C, and D with ease… HEAD DOWN ON THE FLOOR. OH YEAH!

Surprisingly this week, teacher couldn’t seem to push down my arms/hand onto the floor in Prasarita C, something we have been doing since my day 1 of ashtanga. I tell you, he tried all techniques he knows but na-ah! I wonder,  was it my head touching the floor that kept my arms from rotating further back? Ambot! Let’s see next time.

Now here’s Big Bird…doing Prasarita B?

  1. My analysis, since the width of your leg is not the same as before based on your description, maybe there is a balance issue? The arms are not going down because you are trying to maintain that new position of head down and legs wide? Just a thought…
