YogaSkillz Workshop Part II

Did the second of the workshops at the Shala yesterday. The temperatures were near arctic in comparison to last week. We had pretty much the same crew as last week. We worked on headstand, feather of peacock, and handstand. I still need to get the hips up over the shoulders. I'm going to have to find some time to work on this. All of this is "variations on a basic theme". That theme being: hips over shoulders over hands or in physics terms, the center of mass / gravity perpendicular to the floor. We do this all of the time... walking and standing are two examples. The tricksy bit here is that ones hands are on the floor instead of your feet. Back bending is up next.
