upside down truths

53 backbends

why 53 backbends?

yoga can be quite magical

but the way to create magic

(as any scientist will tell you)

is through

practical

and

repeatable

measures.

:::

every year

for the past eight years

I map a plan

to 

drop back my age in years

on my birthday.

this is certainly a bit ridiculous.

especially because this year it is 53 drop backs.

I don't think someone else needs to do 53 backbends.

lordy no.

BUT

I do think it is quite useful

to work with practical and repeatable measures

so that when the magic happens

you have a map of what you did

so you can do it again.
