And on the right you’ll see the elusive handstand, a pose that has evaded me for 22 years.
Day 16 - Two-Legged Inverted Staff Pose
This pose is kind of terrifying for me and I didn’t dare lifting my head up (even though that seems irrational since handstands and arm balances never scare me). My intention is to stop always just seeing the negative aspects in everything
April Intentions Challenge
April 16th:Two-Legged Inverted Staff Pose (Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana)
First time ever doing this pose, and of Course I’m in love, its almost like a headstand back backwards? Its something thats much more in my comfort zone and a really nice progression from wheel.
Today’s Intention is to breath, I’m feeling all tight and icky from my workout yesterday. (Damn You Cleans and Jerks) So I’m going to have to recruit lots of breathing today and caution.
#aprilintentions Days 14-15: Camel and King Cobra Pose hosted by nivueniconnue and bendyrae
I absolutely adore these two poses and was super excited for today. Topped off with perfect weather and a new sports bra it has been a wonderful day.
Today’s intentions are strength and respect in honor of the Boston Marathon. Keep running strong.

#aprilintentions Days 10-12: Handstand, Wide Legged Handstand and Eight Angle Pose
Played some catch up today as my sinuses were not allowing me to bend over for the past few days. Today was exciting because it was the best my handstands have ever felt. I still definitely need to be close to the wall just in case but I managed to kick up a few times and hold without falling back against it.
Eight Angle Pose felt strong but I was definitely humbled when I tried the funky variation. That’s still a no go but it was fun to play around with it.
Today’s intention was to try new things!
