I am always careful when using the word “but”. I am sure this is common knowledge but everything before the but is thought to be untrue slash doesn’t stand for anything. Hence this title of this post. I am not a yogini and I still want to learn to do a headstand.
I found this article on headstands for beginners. I plan on adding the exercises (pictured below) to my daily workout/stretch/foam rolling routine to build muscles, strength and stamina for this pose.
Although not pictured, I also need to add “plank on my forearms” to this practice.
I realized that I needed to actually meditate (not just throw it off my goals list with an excuse). I also realized I needed a bit of guidance. Thank goodness for free apps from the Appstore. I tried this one as recommended by my sister.
There was a little too much talking but I did appreciate the idea the announcer made of feeling my body’s weight and listening to the sounds around you (usually with mediation you try not to focus on those things). When my thoughts wandered, I tried to focus mainly on counting (from 1 to 10) and following my breath.
It actually felt really relaxing and I even got an idea of something to paint #The100DayProject.
Something that helped me get in the mood was actually putting on clothes to mediate in. #GetUpDressUpShowUpNeverGiveUp
