Today I did a handstand in yoga class. That might not seem like a big deal, but for me it was a huge challenge. I mean, can't everyone walk up to a wall, bend over, plant both hands on the floor and throw both legs up over their head?
Piece of cake, right? If you're five!
Of course, everyone can't do handstand and most people could care less. But for me, it represents a breakthrough. Not just the physical breakthrough of getting my body of five-plus decades to do this. Handstand is an extremely beneficial pose, but that's not the point.
