Headstand. Oh boy. It has been my nemesis for years now. I will get this! I’ve even gone so far as to make a resolution this year of attacking my inversion fear. If I make a resolution, it’s official.
This past weekend? I did it. Of course I’m still using the wall. Of course it still scares me some. But…I DID IT. Can’t wait to keep working. So excited.
I was inspired by several articles I’ve read recently:
“Can’t Do a Headstand? You’re Still Good at Yoga!” by Lachrista Greco
“For the Frustrated Headstander” by Brentan Schellenbach
It’s so helpful to realize you’re not alone in your crazy, irrational fear of inversions….especially when every fancy yoga pose ever photographed is one. I’ve still got a long way to go, but this is BIG. Thanks to everyone who has had to listen to me yap about this for the past five years! I think you might get a reprieve!
Also, speaking of yoga, I’m now a guest contributor for one of my favorite websites, Considering You. They are awesome and I highly recommend browsing this site. I’ve written an article about starting out in yoga and how to make it affordable. Check it out right here!
