- This afternoon, I was practicing handstands with my foam blocks. It helps me focus on staying stacked, while my fingers and palms help to set up the foundation. However, I feel as if I’m starting to hit a wall and don’t know what to do next. Therefore, I decided to buy Patrick Beach’s freestanding handstand plan on CodyApp ($20 USD). I honestly don’t know how people tuck into handstands. My lower half feels soooo heavy when I’m trying to do this.
- Going to the gym on Tuesday and Thursday has become a habit. The 6 pm timeslot works well, because it’s not long enough for me to goof off once I get home at 5 pm. I have time for a light meal, chill for a bit and change. If it were 7 pm, my butt would be glued to the couch. It helps that M., another teacher, is pushing me to go too.
- I started working on transitions. Mainly, practicing falling into chaturanga from either a full tripod or a mini tripod. Here’s my best shot. I’ll disclose that after the end of this video, I have collapsed onto my belly. This really does burn the triceps! Eventually, I will work on adding a seal pose too.
- I got tagged in my first #stopdropandyoga. It felt flattering, really. Of course, it had to be a crazy difficult pose and something that I would have never considered doing in the next three months if it weren’t for the tag! Here’s the best shot I took, via Instagram. It took me a week to mentally work myself up to this and I was pretty freaked out about it initially. This is, by no means, an easy pose. According to Kino McGregor, you should have good balance and backbending ability (I am lacking in both departments), I am proud that took a chance and did it though!
