Juneversions! A handstand a day

Hi guys, gals, and everyone else!

I’m so excited to share my own personal challenge with you! One night my roommates and I were attempting random group and couples yoga poses. I found I love doing poses upside down! So, since then, I’ve been practicing my handstands, headstands, shoulderstands, and forearms stands. I saw the handstand 365 challenge and was intrigued. I know I’m not yet confident enough to commit to something for a whole year, but a month? That I can definitely do. I’m calling in the Juneversion challenge!
The plan is to do one inversion a day. You can start by just touching your toes! I know the first time I tried to do a handstand…it ended very badly.  Pinterest and Youtube have tons of helpful tips for starting inversions. The key is to start slow and use the wall if you need to! I love seeing pictures like the ones below, they’re so inspiring!

Mar's Handstand Staywithmeonthis   I’m going to say it’s not to shabby for my first try! My goals for this month are:

  • Do one inversion every day for the month of June. Headstands, handstands, shoulderstands, wheel poses etc.
  • Be able to do a headstand and a handstand by the end of June without a wall!
  • Feel myself get stronger and enjoy that feeling!

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to keep me accountable! Staywithmeonths And of course tag me on Instagram #juneversion or #staywithme and I’ll check you out! 🙂

    Very cool I started the 28 day to a handstand challenge 3 days ago. I had started it before, but I stopped because of headaches…I hope I can finish this time around.
