Mastering my headstand has been the highlight of my year.
It has been a very challenging yoga post for me and I am sure it has very thing to do with the amount of surrender it really takes to achieve. The headstand turns perspective upside-down. Which, really makes everything literally turn upside-down. Mental clarity and an open mind are the rewards.
I attempted, got scared and fell many times before I was finally comfortable enough actually benefit from the pose. And now, headstand feels very natural for me, my body craves it. And I love it.
It is an amazing ability to turn perspective upside down, to think about the your world (the world) from a different angle. Amazing.
