Today is International Handstand Day. This position is what got me interested in bodyweight training and Yoga. In the beginning of my handstand journey, my purpose was to learn something I thought looked cool and impressive. At first, I had no balance whatsoever. I practiced excessively every single day and fell literally thousands of times. During this time, the thought of being able to hold the handstand more than a few short seconds seemed nearly impossible for me. I held a common idea of this century: That "once I can do this I’d be happy". I did held my first handstand for 2 seconds, then 5 seconds, 10 seconds, a minute and so on. Did I got happy? Hell yeah I did! I screamed like a little child filled with joy! Did it last for long? Of course not. I wanted more as we always do. But, Am I happy now? Yes, I certainly am; Not because I have achieved a handstand (which is far from perfect), but because over the years I’ve learned to be grateful and happy in every moment of my practice. I’ve learned that as we arrive somewhere, we want to depart to somewhere else; so the idea that any destination other than this exact and precise moment is the location of happiness is like running on a rat wheel, an enormous endless and misguided illusion. This is the first of many lessons I have learned through the journey of obtaining my handstand. Now for me, the handstand is much more than a physical pose; its a tool that work as an opportunity for self-discovery, self-assessment, self-growth and even self-acceptance. It shows me how I feel at any given moment; how connected I feel, how much I am worrying, how disturbed or peaceful my mind is, but more than anything, how present and in the moment I am living. Hand-balancing in short, is for me a practice of healing, where I can shut out the external noises and truly look deeply inward, a place where my ego dissolves and I can just be there with it all, without defining, judging or attaching to anything. πŸ™
πŸ’«And you, what has handstands or any other skill in general has taught you so far? πŸ’«

With every thought we have, decision we make or action we take we are practicing either love or fear. Remember that whatever it is we practice we get good at. Choose wisely.

Haven't post anything in like 2 weeks. The reason? Many to be honest. But the main one is that every time I think about recording my training I loose part of the magic and the intention of why I'm training on the first place: to disconnect, to get lost and to feel every sensation, feeling and emotion that arises when I move. I train not to get big, get shredded or even to get stronger. Although those things will happen regardless, the true intention of my training is to feel free, to freeze time even for a moment and to enjoy the unique energy that comes with getting in touch with yourself through movement. I know that as a teacher its my duty to show my practice to perhaps inspire others to move pass the physical and mental struggles that comes with any type of physical training. However, when I catch myself thinking too much on 'what my next post is going to be' or 'what can I film today during my workout' is when I take a step back and decide to fully be present in my practice. It may sound selfish in a sense I know; but the truth is that if I don't do that, my practice become dull and incomplete - And that is not the message I am trying to portray to you. My mission is to show you how movement of any kind is simply one of the greatest tools we have to grow as humans, to explore the deepest parts of our consciousness and to feel completed and alive; realizing that everything we need to be happy is found in only two places: Within ourselves and in the present moment. || The other reasons are some life lessons that I would love to share on my upcoming posts, but for now I hope you understand my little IG vacation πŸ˜…πŸ˜„ I am back tho! Ready to share so many things learned in the past weeks with all of you! 😊

Move, speak and act with intention. Don't just do things for the sake of doing them. The moment you know why you are doing something, the how will take care of itself. It never works the other way around.
✨✨✨What is your intention and the 'why' behind your physical practice? I would love to know πŸ™‚βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
Have a blessed and beautiful weekend! πŸ™πŸ½πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™

Things are starting to make more sense here. And funny enough the more we make sense of a pose, the more we make sense about life. We should not use our mind to understand the poses, but rather use the poses to understand the mind. Every time we 'accomplish' a new move or we improve in any area of our training, we also do so in our mind; getting a taste of a new inexplicable wisdom. That is why physical training of any kind should only be a tool to get to know yourself so you can advance as a person in this life-thing we are all playing. If not so, whats the point? To impress maybe?...The truth is that nobody cares if you can hold a handstand or if you hold it long enough, straight enough, 'banana style' or if it looks like a so called 'perfect straight line handstand' - nor do people care if you can hold a handstand with one arm or if you are still struggling to get off the wall. Being stronger, more flexible or more 'ripped' does not make you a better person; it only does if you know how to use your practice properly. Whenever you are in your physical journey today; it is and will always be perfect. Stop stressing about achieving a new move or about getting that impressive looking body and start appreciating your practice/training for what it was designed to do in the first place - to make you become the best version you can possibly be so you can empower others to do the same.

There is no need to get fancy with your workouts. Just get up and do something πŸ’ͺ🏼
