I hope it is not because my heart is not open. I must really need to do them and I'll keep trying. Thanks for the great information ....I really like your blog!

For years I've been straightening my crooked back into a straight one. Years of pain and nausea. My back eventually got straight but all this pain and nausea I'll never forget in a million years! All of these symptoms that you've described above - I do get all of them at once. Unimaginably difficult asana for me, related to physical suffering, but in the end it did its thing. Wonder if the acrobats and snake people do get through the same frustration with their backbends. Any idea? Very true about the backbends and nausea.

Now that I'm 51 and in the throes of menopause, I find myself not "wanting to go" where backbends take me. This seems to be a period of my life where I'm traveling within more than ever, and backbends have always seemed to hurl me out into the universe. Just an observation. Love the blog.

I'm sure they have a valuable lesson to teach me. I don't get strong emotions during backbends but I do get nausea and a sort of "body panic" [can't describe it any other way]. It happens almost immediately after going into the pose. Ustrasana is the worst. Could this be a similar thing to what you're describing? I don't want to give up on backbends so I'm taking them very gently, hoping to coax my body into the realisation that every thing is okay! Oooh, backbends.
