Handstands are fun, not just as part of yoga, but at any old time. Being upside down provides a different perspective on the world, and nourishes faith, concentration, joy, confidence and strength!
There are handstands the camera can catch when the body is actually still in motion, whirling back onto two feet … and then there are handstands that require a lot more persistence … actually staying upright and aligned as long as possible!
My granddaughter goes to Gymnastics, which you can tell she just loves, and does very well! I loved standing on my hands and catherine-wheeling all over the grass in our 1950’s back garden. Here is a photo taken when I must have been about 12, because we moved from this house at that time. You can tell I don’t have the benefit of training … but it was just the fun I enjoyed. Now I blame my arthritic wrists on my love of being upside down, or vaulting, or playing hockey, or swinging on the monkey bars at my boarding school.
Three cheers for Frizz and his HHH challenge this week!
