i'm so proud . . .

one of my dearest friends (and yogi of tranquil space since one of my first living room classes) had a goal to stand on her head by her 40th birthday. we met about six times over the past few months to practice headstand and see her amazing progress. this photo was taken on her birthday on a san francisco sidewalk. she practiced nightly for months despite an insane work and travel schedule. go m.h. sooooo proud of you!

Awesome - just awesome! The picture is great - kudos to your friend!
I had set some 'life altering' goals for my 40th birthday - M.S. degree and be a RYT, but I love the idea of yoga poses! Headstand is one that I want to get but also a few others, so I must thing a about a timeline and devise a daily practice to assist. Also, I have been thinking of having one on one sessions with a really good teacher - fab idea!
Thanks Kimberly!

Congratulations!!
Headstand still eludes me - your friend is great inspiration. Perhaps you could do a masterclass in headstand Kimberly?!

I give Kimberly all the credit for coaching, inspiring, and encouraging me through the long months when I thought I'd never do this. Thanks everyone! "mh"
