Vinyasa Yoga Class Oct 25th, 2011

It’s best when you are planning to teach handstand, that you keep it a secret until the last moment. After all, the more time you have to THINK about about doing something scary, the more time you have to talk yourself out of it. So much of our success in physical challenges have to do with our mindset. The less time you have to convince yourself “it’s impossible – there’s no way”, the more likely you’ll be successful.

8 brave yogis started class tonight in legs up the wall, a soothing inversion that helped us restore and build energy for the rest of class. Chill out here for a few, hit the music, and BAM! Breath was working like an well-oiled machine and poses were flowing like buttah to prep for going upside down. Of course we had our friend, the wall, there to support us.

The best way to approach Adho Mukha Vrksasana, Handstand, is to build it in stages. You prepare, learn, and practice the stage that feels just a little bit scary to you. You want to challenge yourself without jumping over that intelligent edge of your limitations and experience. That’s how you build success. Let me show you.

The 5 Steps to Doing Something Really Crazy and Scary.
