I read a very interesting article today about the myths of yoga. One of them was " yoga is about becoming a pretzel". This is a subject that I am very close to. 
14 years ago, I tried my very first yoga class. I really didn't get on well with it, nor the teacher. She t...

Sundays are always busy days, and yet, I finished a great day with 30 minutes of inversion practice. My arms are a little sore after my little break through yesterday, so I worked on holding headstand, forearm balance, shoulder stand and of course handstand to strength...

After a full on day with ballet and school entertainment, I walked in the door at 9:15pm, exhausted and hungry with my mental warriors at war: "There's no possibility of doing my handstand today, I'm far too busy, too tired and too hungry." I thought of excuses to writ...

Today I enjoyed a slower morning than usual! Lili is off school and we all managed to do a little practice together!! I had my morning energy and it felt goood!  Watching the kids do their handstands gave me a flash back of my care free childhood; The amazing fun times...

Handstanding is becoming as habitual as brushing my teeth. While I did my little practice, I reflected on a conversation I recently had with a friend of mine: the debate of honesty! At first you might wonder how honesty could be debatable....it seems obvious that we mu...

Today I decided a different approach for my challenge: to work on my other inversions such as headstand and forearm balance first, before holding my handstand with help of the wall. I needed a change of routine, and to feel something different....
Yesterday, I made my...

Whether it be work, studying at school, practicing yoga (or practicing handstands), we find ourselves often too serious. There must always be a balance between serious and play. I realise that over the past few days, I am being too serious about my handstand, and perha...

 It rained today and my body and mind did not feel quite the same... I lost my mojo with all the damp in the air! Although we are blessed with this rain, I reflected on my experience today: I found myself slightly frustrated as lifting into handstand was more an effort...

Everyday I feel a little bit stronger, but the only thing that is keeping me from holding the handstand, is my balance! Standing on one foot has always been a fairly easy thing for me to do. On a good day, I generally feel very much in balance in my life.... But tip me...

I barely had time for my handstand practice today, but I managed to squeeze one in eventually! It's amazing how much control you need for handstands, and it's amazing how little control I have at the moment. 
From a young age, we are controlled by our parents, to teach...
