*Head-Free Tripod Headstand* .

#angelasyogatutorials .
.
I’ve posted other head-free variations of Headstand for those of you who prefer to not put weight on your heads. The previous ones required more blocks, and this one only requires 2! .
.
🙌Place 2 folded blankets or 2 books and place the blocks on top of it. Make sure there is space of 3 inches or so between your setup and the wall. .
.
🙌Place your hands directly behind the blocks and place your shoulder on the blocks. Make sure that you place the blocks so that it is on the fleshy part of your shoulders and not the shoulder bones themselves. Also, make sure your there is space between your head and the floor. .
.
🙌Squeeze your outer arms in. You want to create a 90 degree angle with your arms and your shoulders. (A common mistake is taking the arms too wide which destabilizes the pose.) .
.
🙌Walk your feet towards your hands until you feel your hips stack over your shoulders or as close as you can get. Take an inhale and as you exhale draw your ribs together and down as if you were wearing a corset. Then taking your feet wide rise up onto the balls of your feet. Sweep your feet out towards the sides of the room as if you were trying to touch the sides of the room with your toes. Then take your legs around and up. .

What can you be grateful for right now? Do you ever look back at your life and think about how good you had it at different times and then remember how obsessed you were with something silly, like how fat you felt in your outfit or something else completely meaningless? All the while you were missing the most magnificent blessings that were literally right in front of your face? .
.
It’s sad to think back about some of the trivial things that kept me from appreciating the beauty of my experiences. Many times I could have been happy or grateful, I wasted wishing things were some other way. If I only had that. If I was prettier. If I could just achieve that one big goal, THEN I would be happy. Or so I thought. .
.
My mantra these days is “Appreciate everything because one day you will look back and see what a gift it all was.” .
.
Okay, so EVERY day doesn’t always FEEL like a gift and all, but it IS! Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday, probably not too long from now, you will remember today and see how special it was to be exactly where you are right this now. So enjoy it! Enjoy every minute of it! 🤗

*SIMPLE EVERDAY HANDSTAND DRILL* .
#angelasyogatutorials .
.
Notice I said simple and not easy! 😅I don’t do the “simple” handstand drills as often as I should. When I do, it is like a goldmine of information 💰💎is revealed to me. I find this especially the longer I practice the more the basics teach me everything about the final pose. So weird. In the beginning I had no time for the basics of course. 🙄😂Anyways, I highly recommend that you add this to the beginning of your practice and before Inversions for at least a minute. (That is, if you can last that long! 😅🙌) .
.
🙌Stand with your big toe knuckles touching and heels ever so slightly apart. Roll your inner thighs back and apart until you feel your butt relax to attain the correct leg position. Then take your butt and lengthen it towards your heels until you feel your frontal hip points lift up towards your bottom ribs. (Also known as a posterior tilt of the pelvis. An anterior tilt is often seen in a banana handstand where the butt sticks out and the belly spills forward. This puts a lot of pressure on the lumbar spine.) Zip your inner thighs up from the ankle bones to the tops of the thighs. .
.
🙌Take a deep inhale and as you exhale cinch your ribs down towards your hip points and together as if you were pulling on the strings of a corset. At the same time keep the sternum lifted. .
.
🙌With your arms down alongside your body spin your palms to face each other. Then reach them forward spreading your upper back and up alongside your ears. Wrap your triceps in towards the tip of your nose and maintain the spread of your shoulder blades apart. Squeeze your arms to straight. Do not let your elbows bend. .
🙌Press up through your palms. Rise up onto the balls of your feet. Press through your big toe knuckle and your second toe knuckle to find balance. Gradually take your eyes up and try to look between your hands as you would in a handstand. Hold for as long as you can keep Balance. Whatever shows up here is likely to show up in your handstand, so notice where you might be leaking energy or not engaging. Good luck! .

Smiling is the new hiding your face from the camera. 😁When I first started my Instagram page I was terrified of posting a photo with my actual face in it. 🤦‍♀️I am not sure why, but I just felt terribly shy about it. Anyways, at some point I realized how silly it was. .
On that note, I’d love to see all of your smiling faces! It’s nice to know that should we ever meet in person I would be able to recognize you! 💁‍♀️🙂 Although let’s face it, with some of you, I’d have to do this 🙃since I am so used to seeing you upside down! 🤸‍♀️😂
.
Anyways, if you are shy about posting a photo with your actual face in it (😯) like I was, I encourage you to do it! We would all love to see your beautiful smile! ❤️Comment below if you plan to accept this challenge or just want to share your feelings on the topic, I’d love to hear them! 🤗P.S. I know I have been slacking on the tutorials this past week. I am editing a few and plan to post them starting tomorrow! .

Everyday I remind myself not to spend my days worrying about the stuff that doesn’t matter. Does it work? Some of the time. Other times I obsess about why someone hasn’t called me back, if I look fat in the leggings I am wearing, or fill in the blank with any other silly little thing. Our minds like to make problems where none exist. So, if you are having a perfectly awesome day and assuming you are a mere mortal, your mind will look for things to busy itself with. As much as possible I remind myself that I’ve got it GOOD!!! I have incredible friends whom I adore that inspire me every day, a loving family and more love coming my way than anyone could ever ask for! I’m healthy. I can move my body. 🤸‍♀️ I have a warm bed. Food to eat. 🥗I have a job that I am passionate about that excites me to get out of bed in the morning. 🧘🏼‍♀️ I have a boyfriend who is a really good kisser and likes to tell me I’m beautiful. 💋🤴🏻Oh and let’s not forget coffee, I am super grateful for coffee!!! ☕️❤️🙏Write 3-10 things you are super grateful for in the comments!!! #gratitude

*BUILD STRENGTH AND MUSCLE MEMORY FOR PRESS HANDSTAND* .
.
#angelasyogatutorials .
.
It may seem a bit far fetched to claim that you can use this drill to learn press handstand, BUT the muscle memory and feel is very similar in the legs/compression and hip stacking needed for the press. I honestly meet people all the time who are working on their press that would most likely struggle with this drill. I can’t emphasize enough the value of progressions and gradually teaching your body what you want it to do instead of just expecting it to perform when you want to do something super challenging. .
.
🙌Come onto hands and knees. Place your hands shoulder width apart and directly underneath your shoulders. Walk your knees in until they are touching the back of your wrists. .
.
🙌Bend your elbows stacking them directly on top of your wrists. Tuck your chin all the way to your chest (try to go for the triple chin look 😆) and place the crown of your head on the floor. If you did the other steps correctly your head should be in the perfect spot. .
.
🙌Lift your shoulders away from the floor and spread them across your upper back. Squeeze your elbows in towards one another and root your index fingers and thumbs down. .
.
🙌Lift your hips and drag your feet in towards your body as you engage your belly and stack your hips over your shoulders. Then, reach your toes out to the sides of the room, around and up. Bring them together at the top and then s l o w l y bring them back down the way you came up. The trick is to bend your knees and slide them down your forearms to the floor to work the compression in the belly. Repeat! .
.
Loving my @mysugarmat for this drill as it is soft and easy to slide on! .
