A Rush of Blood to the Head

Oh Hey! Check out my new trick! I have been in awe of those that can do headstands and handstands for a while now and at a recent yoga event I finally learned how to do it on my own! While my all time favorite yoga pose will always be dancer, it is tons of fun to learn new, uber-cool poses!

Headstand Domination!


I also have been working a great deal on crow pose as well – Here i am rocking it at one of our recent Urban Yoga Philly events! I still need to get my toes to touch in the back, but I can already tell my upper body strength is improving to hold these poses long enough to take a decent picture!


What do you think is the coolest looking yoga pose? What is the hardest pose for you to master?

    Nice job! I can remember having headstand/handstand competitions with my sisters when we were kids. I’ll have to see how my skills held up.

    I can’t say I have a favorite pose. Usually I am most fond of standing balancing poses but given the workout I typically feel like my favorite is the one I’m currently doing. Doing yoga just makes me feel strong in a way that weight lifting never did.

    Kudos to you for being able to do a headstand! I do like your crow pose though and of course the dancer is so pretty! I’m not a yoga fan, but maybe I should look into it in my old age!
