As I mentioned in a couple of previous posts, I like inversions, though I’ve had some go-arounds with fear in them. But, I’ve never really been able to come away from the wall for more than a few seconds at a time (well, I think twice I did longer, but it felt almost accidental). Today in class, I went up into headstand in my usual way. I’ve been working on going up by slowly lifting the legs up together with knees bent, rather than kicking up. I went most of the way up and then had to go to the wall, as usual, but on the way there, I had an interesting split second of “lightness.” So, as soon as I hit the wall, I started working to take one foot away toward the center of the room and bring the other to meet it. And… there it was! It almost felt like I was pulling up from the feet, rather than just pushing down into my head and arms. I’ve been told that, but I’ve never felt it, so I wasn’t totally sure I believed it, I guess. But, there it was!
I don’t really have anything else to say about that. 🙂 Who knows if it will happen the next time, or if it will be a while before it does again. But, it did today and it was super-awesome-cool-diggity. YAY, YOGA!
