Doing beginner pilates with Cassey, I quickly realized how little strength and flexibility I have, and that’s not okay considering I’m only twenty-five and should be in the best shape of my life! Soooo I bought a yoga mat and signed up for my first yoga class today! Doing workouts at home with a YouTube video is fine and dandy, but attending a live class will not only help me stay motivated but will also give me the chance to meet a bunch of cool new people.
Here’s my first headstand! It took me a few tries to be able to balance without the wall, but I can only stay up for a few seconds and I shake like a leaf. The headstand takes a good deal of core strength, balance, and control, things I am only just beginning to learn. Once I can safely hold myself up without a wall, I want to learn a modified headstand 🙂 “Love your body. It can do amazing things.”
