Yoga Headstand!

So I’ve been taking a yoga class through the community college and I have been LOVING it! I am finding out that I’m stronger than I thought but not quite as flexible as I wanted. But I am working on it. And last night, I almost had my heels touching the ground in downward dog. They were about half an inch above the ground and teasing me with not going any further down.

One of the goals of the class is to create a home practice. And last week, the instructor discussed what the goals of home practice yoga could be. And I heard her say one thing “head stand” and I was hooked! So that’s my goal right now. I want to be able to do this pose in the middle of the room (with no support from the wall) and I want to be able to bust it out at any moment. It’s just damn impressive! Here’s someone who obviously has this pose down:

So there it is, now that I’ve announced it for all to hear, I’m responsible! I’ll have to get this into my repertoire. I’ll get Roger to take a picture once I’ve mastered it.

Have a great day everyone! I’m super busy this week and can’t wait until the summer courses end next week so I can breath a little.
