Recently I've had lots of questions on the HOW & WHY I press into handstand.
Some yogis consider the quest for the press a right of passage, indicative of transformation into something magical.
Sounds great. The truth is... nothing crazy happens when you finally lift off. Initially the high from achievement colours life, and it should. That shits not easy. It doesn't solve life's heartache and pain, or pay the bills.
It does do this 🤔
In the same way our hearts beat, our minds think. Practicing handstands gives my mind something to focus on, so I get a break from the usual nonsense it spins on. When the check list creeps in, I fall. In order to remain balanced it's imperative to focus. Steady eyes, calm mind. It trains the student to control thoughts, and the energy we place on them. Eventually this is the magical gift we take off the mat, and into life.
Today we focus on HOW to press. 4:30 Lakewood We Yogis.
