I have always loved yoga!
One of my biggest dreams is to one day be a stay at home mom and teach yoga at a local gym. So one day when I am done with graduate school I plan on pursuing getting certified to be a yoga instructor.
This year, sometime in February I found a lady on instagram Kerri Verna, from @beachyogagirl or her facebook page, Beach Yoga with Kerri! I was amazed at the kind of yoga moves I was seeing her do! Lot's of hand stands, and very challenging poses! I WAS INSPIRED!!
And then it began.
I started my first handstand off by getting my husband to help me. I was scared to even do a handstand against the wall because it had been so many years since I had done one.
This was one of the very first handstands I did! See the wobbliness. It was rough.
This was the first forearm stand that I did. The middle picture is also one of the first photos I saw of @BeachYogaGirl, and one of the first ones that majorly inspired me and contributed to me desiring to get good at this.
Now I am doing handstands all the time. Still using the wall, but it has only been two months. I am slowly getting good hang time without the wall though. And I have full intentions to get very confident in this where I can do it anywhere!
Here are some of the moves that I have advanced to!
There are 3 reasons why I love handstand yoga so much!
1) It is not only fun but continually challenging
2) I see strength improvements daily. One day I may not be able to do a move that I can easily achieve the next time I practice!
3) It is fun to partner with my husband for some partner yoga moves!
All it starts with is a handstand!
