Hey, look ma, no hands!

I gave this a try in my yoga class tonight.  Didn't think I'd be able to do it since I find the regular shoulderstand so difficult... but I could do it! 

We did quite a few poses to build to niralamba sarvangasanaa (unsupported shoulderstand), including several dog pose and headstand variations.

What fun!  I feel like I just did my first cartwheel.

I think I will try it! I gave up some years ago with a headstand, but this looks easier and safer for the neck. What would we do without yoga~~
Have a great weekend Diane! Susan :)
