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. Now lift your hips into an easygoing down dog, with a nice bend in your elbows and knees. Keep…

I've learned something incredibly valuable over the last several years, and it goes against everything I've been taught about achieving in my life. It's been a revolution for me, allowing me to achieve more and actually enjoy the process of working toward my goals, without stress, tension, struggle and defeat. When I started to dive into what I was discovering, I found there was a strict rulebook in place for life.  If we follow it diligently, work really hard, keep our head down, and push on through all the stress and struggle, it tells us we might just get to something good, someday. I don't…
Drop the Struggle

Drop the Struggle

  Everyone has told you life is hard. You have to push harder, force past the rest, get ahead by tensing everything you've got and one day you'll break through to something else. Maybe. If you're lucky. What if the struggle wasn't real and the only thing real is the tension we create to make ourselves believe we are working hard enough & to shut out the fear that we aren't good enough and don't deserve happiness unless we are miserable first. What if you move easily, everything you've got, in every direction you can. What if you move naturally,…
