Some helpful approaches to these intense backbending postures! In my class, I need to offer lots of adaptations. (One that I was just experimenting with for Supta Vajrasana places a bolster lengthwise behind the back and uses a belt to bind.) Thank you Citrine and Dylan!
Hey Kate ! I definitely think it's useful to be "strapped" with as many adaptations as you are able. I use them only when needed and I counsel people to use a modification only as long as they need to... eventually building towards a more full, independent expression of the posture. Supta Vajrasana is definitely a challenging asana, especially when practicing solo! Thanks for your interest and many blessings upon your path! D
