YOGA POSE OF THE DAY: HANDSTAND

“Transformation is sustained change, and it is achieved through practice.” B.K.S. Iyengar

I’ve been working on my handstands in my yoga practice, and am just beginning to appreciate this challenging and rewarding pose.  Finally, I can feel the grace and ease when my body is truly in alignment. I used to try so hard to get my handstands “right,” and they always eluded me.  Then I learned how to trust my wrists…trust my arms…trust my shoulders…and the rest of my body naturally eased into place.

Things can be easy when we let them be.  It is an adjustment to get used to flowing with the current when we are used to struggling.  Handstand reminds me that when I am in alignment with my daily actions, every endeavor feels more graceful and effortless…

    what a great post! thanks for sharing this, and I am inspired by your amazing architectural work. We are building a mid century modern home in Kula, and I hope it turns out half as beautiful as the one on your web site. Aloha,
