There are methods. Two chairs works. Parallel bars on playgrounds. A couple blocks and a strap. Doing the pose on the back. I'm sure if I had enough helium balloons, I'd get up. I'm happy to share these with the Internets if you would like, just send me a line. But I never felt the floating until now.
In the video below, I place my bottom foot in a wall strap, and place my hands fairly close to the wall. I press down on the strap, and voila! air time.
For those not into video watching, here are some pictures:
While I was at it, I played around with Eka Hasta Bhujasana. While not nearly as difficult for me as Lolasana, still has it's challenges.
Again, I push down on the strap to lift myself up.
I know that the action in the pose should not be pressing down with the feet; but it is sure nice to get some air time.
We all need help from time to time:
