This morning was a struggle... to put it lightly. Let's just say my alter ego was running a muck downtown last night. Woof.
Today, at 3pm when I peeled myself from my bed, I thought it was appropriate to try out Adriene's Yoga for Hangovers. Of course it was perfect and exactly what I needed. I felt so good after that I tried out my first ever headstand. Her Foundations of Yoga series is so great. When I've attempted headstands before I was doing it all wrong. Putting actual pressure on my head, feeling frustrated, and not understanding why I couldn't get up into one. She really dives in deep to the necessary steps to accomplish this position.
When I first got to stage one of lifting off with my knees bent I was SO excited, so of course the second time I did it I filmed it. I felt so good about it I extended my legs and held an actual headstand! My form is definitely not great. I need to work on getting that straight line from the crown of my head to the tips of my toes, but I was so proud of myself! Especially on a day where I wanted to lay down and die for the most part.
So if you were out with me last night... or had a similar experience, I highly recommend Adriene's Yoga for Hangovers! Namaste.
