Urdhva dhanurasana is fun and full but in the wheel of this lifetime, life is for living not posing… and sharing in loving consideration of all living beings as part of the fabric woven and rewoven through eternity as Indra’s Net.
The important thing is not what pose you do but rather letting go of the image of who we think we are while at the same time nurturing and growing in relationship to All. No backbend will do it, the bridge we must build and continue to maintain is that which stretches from within our hearts , heart to heart, mind to mind, being to being. That is built in the silent sacred place of being. The inner cave of the heart meditation is a good place to start: you can find that meditation online or just look in your own.
Sometimes the gap between human and being seems to be an insurmountable barrier or an uncrossable chasm. We build a bridge with conscious action. If in fact, as yoga says we are all one, then the apparent space between us is in fact part of that one.
Life is indeed a koan, a riddle , but living it to the fullest as an expression of the creator, creating and sharing the space is a gift.
