Some of you may know that I enjoy yoga as my exercise and mindfulness practice, but you may or may not know know that I also love handstands, headstands and for a time I got to attend Aerial yoga when it was available here, which I absolutely loved-so much so that I bought a silk for my kids (and me, a few Christmases ago!).
I love being inverted (upside down) and the new challenges this brings to my core and my balance, as well as the benefits of increased alertness and energy. It’s a great way to shake things up and get a fresh perspective on life too.
When I’m getting back into practice with my handstands or arm balances, all of a sudden my kids get into it again-showing how influenced by modelling they are.
I also love that although I used to do lots of these things when I was younger (as most kids do!), for many adults we stop playing and being adventurous in this manner.
So I’m glad that I’m still working on these skills and have not succumbed to the false believe that I’m ‘too old’ to try!
