Great tips, thanks Felix!

Yes - thank you for this one Felix! This is another stretch that has helped my back (almost seemingly by accident!)    At first I couldn't do it much at all. The best I could do was try to grab that back leg and not fall over. Now I can almost get my chin to my heel! My splits are straight - but I think I still look slightly crooked when I do it - and I'm not quite ready for the last part - I'm definitely getting better at it. Love this one!

This one I can't see?

Now I can contort that way with my same arm as leg rotating, then extending then catching with the other hand. Not sure if that's helpful for the Eagle. It's been one of my goal moves since I started poling years ago
