I did a headstand for the first time at my Monday night yoga class. I completely surprised myself – and in the shock of the moment I almost topped over. Thankfully my teacher was right beside me and kept me from falling hard.
It had been months since I’d even given one a try, so sure was I that I didn’t yet have the core strength, balance and general spunk one needs to turn oneself upside down.
So when I found myself suddenly there, legs stretched high, I couldn’t help but wonder – have I been able to do this all along?
More importantly, and perhaps completely unrelated to yoga, what else can I do that I haven’t yet realised? That I’ve been too afraid to try?
