Happy St. Patrick's Day! I celebrated by wearing a green necklace to the class. Practice was the short form and I played around with drop backs against the wall.

I taught one of my young students how to drop back today and it occurred to me how ironic it is that I can give all this great advice and guidance on how to drop back, but I still can't do it on my own. It's embarrassing. Part of it is due to an inflexible spine - I've never been bendy. Of course, there only one remedy to that: more back bends. But I hate them.

Really, really, hate.

It's so much easier to do the stuff I like - strength stuff like handstands and arm balances. Of course, I didn't previously enjoy hand stand either. It came with practice.
