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!
