Up up!

Up, up!

I have never done a handstand in my life, despite 5 years of yoga practice. Nor a tripod, pincha, or headstand without the wall. Atleast not before i undertook YTT. I am by nature cautious, and i think all of you out there who have a fear of inversions would understand my reservations. I was always imagining fearsome scenes such as landing on my face or injuring my neck. But now i understand, as in yogic philosophy, you got to allow space in your body, your practice , your life and your mind. Practice images of you suceeding instead of falling; Think positive, and good things will come your way. Caution should be practiced, but should not be crippling. I finally did my first handstand (think protracted shoulder blades, tucked in tailbone, lean weight into your hands) in class a couple of weeks back under the watchful eyes of Jessica, and now her command Up Up! is ingrained in my mind. Never give up and Up Up you go!
