According to Google the record for the longest handstand ever is 1 minute and 54 seconds. Seems suspiciously beatable, yes!!!!????? 💛🤸🏽♂️ ✨ Just a sampling of the many benefits of this splendid pose: ~ increased bloodflow to the brain means handstands are energizing, energy-boosting, and mood-elevating ☺️ ~ they boost upper-body strength 💪🏽 ~ they train balance and core stabilizing muscles! (the Sanskrit adho mukha vrkasana literally means downward-facing tree!) 🌴 ~ when you aren't sure if you're really upside down (or underwater), handstands are the lifesaver! 🤸🏽♂️ ✨ 📷: the spectacular @evabozzo 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 via @pirouetteblog 🌺🌸🌿 ✨ #duckduckdogyoga#playfromthe💛#kidsyoga#kidsyogamats#handstand#kidsphotography
Study says that not only will they perceive danger, but they will also try to step in and stop it - which may not be the best thing for kids.
Learning to try, and try again. That's The Genius of Play!
Are you still friends with the neighborhood kids you played with? Play gives kids an opportunity to create bonds that last a lifetime!
