Progress Wednesdays – A Little Update on My Handstands Journey

IMG_20150214_091117

The day I got inspired

Earlier this year, after attending a Acro-Yoga class, I set myself the goal of learning how to do a handstand. It took me a while to get started… but eventually I did (with a bit of support of course!).

So I started with kicking off a box against the wall, then moved on to launching ( πŸ™‚ ) from the ground against the wall andΒ most recently trying my hand at headstands (plus a variation).

Headstand Variation

I haven’t been practicing as much lately, however I feel like I am getting closer to coming off the wall (well… with headstands at least!).

Check out my progress videos below.

So as you can see it took me a couple of months to get from a complete beginner (and being totally afraid of getting myself upside down) to a somewhat intermediate level. Yep, nothing comes easy, but hard work and persistence pays off!
