I like to think I’m pretty graceful in the air, but on the ground I’m awkward as hell. My students have been working on handstands lately and now I’ve gotten the itch to try, but it’s difficult working on something you’re terrible at.
Looks like I’m really good though, right?? I can flip up against the wall and then float away for a whole three seconds.
I really would like to be better on the ground though. Lugging all that aerial equipment is a pain and sometimes it would be nice to just show up and do some cartwheels and back bends and walk around on my hands.
So I’m trying to turn this into a daily routine. Five to 10 handstands and working on coming up into the air without cartwheeling against the wall.
