I’m working on fluidity in my backbends/drop-backs – cutting out the extra breaths and the purposeful distractions.
The other day after finishing my usual 3-5 drop-backs and ready to move on, my teacher looked at me and said: “Do sets of 54.”
Haha, umm, sets of 54?! He must be joking! I laughed (along with everyone else who overheard).
But maybe he wasn’t joking? Iyengar did 108 drop-backs in row – that’s two sets of 54 (and if you watch videos of him, he makes them look effortless).
