What a fun day!

I went to Jason's Vinyasa class today with Nikki. I went into a headstand (tripod) with my legs fully extended for 12 breaths. I tried to do a traditional headstand (arms on the floor with forearms on the mat hands cupped) and couldn't. I asked Jason what I could do to learn to do it. He spotted me and I still couldn't lift my legs, I felt so unstable and worried that I would flip over. I couldn't get past my fear. I'm going to have to work on this more as I know I can do it. It really hit me that it was my mind that was stopping me. I felt relieved that I figured it out. It has been on the back of my mind and I know I need to face it.

I taught two awesomely fun classes today, I really love what I am doing! I told this to the boys and Alex in his mature 11 year old voice said "Confucious say that a person who loves their job never does a day of work in their life." I almost cried. That is exactly the way I feel and I am so thankful!! They are studying Eastern Cultures in Social Studies, thanks Mrs. C!

Face your fear, or at least try to figure out what it is that you are afraid of.

Oh, I think I'm going to like this blog! I've been taking a Vinyasa class the last 2 months and loving it! Just tried that headstand too. Made it two breaths. Thrilling. I know what you're talking about though. It's all in our head!
