Class# 295; AYC DC Mysore Class # 131: Another Eureka Moment.

Brought to you by Post-it Notes.
I did it - I dropped back.

No crash.
No drama.

Just a little assist from a simple post-it note.

and then you don't show up today for me to see it. i need a post it like that for parsva d. only it would say 'feet' or 'ass' and i would have to stick it to whomever is to the sides of me. i don't think alfia or kelly would mind.

alfia said...

I totally would not mind. Cover me with sticky notes, baby! :D

Congrats, Portside! I knew you could do it. In fact, I saw you do it, so there was no a hint of a doubt. Good job!

Word "braces". Hmmmm...

Congrats! I'm not sure if you know that dropbacks were my nemesis - it took me a year and a half to develop the courage, and for my body to figure out the standing-up mechanism!

And then sometimes, there's beauty in the simplicity.

Roar to you!

Do you get a new pair of shoes as a prize?

Hi Portside
Congratulations. you mean you put that post it on the wall at the floor so you could mentally process where the floor was when dropping? he he. i can just imagine my bringing a post it note to the shala and my teacher wondering about this new prop, now that i'm playing with straps and blocks. ha! but it could work.

OOOH! Anna! A new pair of shoes would be fab - I hadn't thought about doing that, I did just see a great pair of Campers on sale.

And yes, Arturo. That is exactly why I put the post-it there. :) It also helped me to not make my drop back so tight, which I have a tendency to do. It couldn't hurt to try!

PS I'm with Anna, and totally vote for some new shoes... :P
