Journey to Handstand – Week 3 {Yoga Challenge}

This was a great week of handstand exercises. On day 21, I finally came close to accomplishing my goal of crow to handstand. I used a strap and was near a wall, but I actually had the core strength to lift myself up! I’ve been practicing it intermittently for the past couple of months so I’m really happy I finally got it (sorta).

Journey to Handstand – Week 2 {Yoga Challenge}

This has probably been the most fun challenge so far because of things like “learning to fall” (day 9). Journey to Handstand hasn’t just been about a single pose every day, but different activities that are really great for helping with handstands.
