I Did It!

It didn't happen as fast as I wanted it to even if I was taught the (headstand) pose the first few days of my yoga practice last year in October. As in most things, it took me a while and a lot of practice. K, our Ashtanga instructress, has always been encouraging in all of the sessions I attended with her. J, the lead yoga instructress, once said that with constant practice, it will just happen.

I have made many attempts with help from my son, my hubby or the wall.  I finally dared to do it without the security of the wall behind me... just the watchful eye of hubby and his ready helping hand to straighten me when I start to lean more on my right. So 11 months after my first, though only for a few breaths long, it actually happened.  I proudly held my own.
