Practice makes perfect?

This week I tried to practice inversions more often.  I think I can bunny hop into a headstand, but at the same time I think I use the wall to bunny hop.  I don’t think I am capable of going into the middle of the room yet even though I really wish I was there.  I did do lotus pose as I was doing a headstand.  It was pretty fun!  During class I realized that my balance is horrible.  I have such a difficult time doing the poses in which we need good balance.  It can be very frustrating.  However, I realize that all of us have our strengths and weaknesses, and weaknesses are good because they show that we always will have something to work on.  In class, I thought Warrior III pose was very tough.  I could not get my standing leg to go straight without tipping over.  However, I have practiced it a few times at home and found that I can actually do this pose for a few seconds before toppling over.  I take that as an accomplishment!  I will continue to practice all the balancing poses and hope that I’ll get better at them.


  1. That is so cool that you can do lotus pose in headstand! Lotus pose is the pose I have the most trouble with, so I definitely had a little pose envy when I'd look over and see you sitting in a near perfect lotus. :)

  2. jealous, haha.

    In my balance, I have noticed that I am better at balancing in inversions, but not so much in standing poses. Wonder what that's about.
