Go Easy on Yourself

You might find that going easy on yourself is the best way to do everything there is.   Yoga is neat because it gives us a way to see everything there is to see about ourselves. And inversions can be even more fun here - not because standing on your hands will change your life, but because we get to see even more clearly what happens in our minds, and our bodies, as we approach challenge.

What You Need to Know About Practicing Yoga When You’re Pregnant

Yoga, at its best, has the wonderful capacity to heal, connect you back to your intuition and awareness, build balanced strength and mobility in your body, and energize your whole self.

There are also better ways to drop the stress and tension while practicing, allowing you to accomplish more as you progress and feel great during the process.  …
6 Tips for Handstands and Everything Else

6 Tips for Handstands and Everything Else

  Whatever it is you're doing, make sure it's playful and fun for you. Don't push hard to get past the tough spots. Instead, just move gently around them.   With hand-standing, this means 1) Don't rush headlong to be upside down! Where you are right now is a good place to be. Begin in a cat-cow, gently rolling your hips around, and staying relaxed enough that the rest of your body just goes along for the ride. 2) Just move.
