Root down to rise up…
This advice is relevant both in a handstand and in everyday life.
If your foundation, your connection to the earth isn’t strong, you will never find strength in the posture.
A tree doesn’t just grow up and out, it creates stability by growing roots deep down and wide into the ground.
Ground down before defying gravity.
In the same way, it is so important to mentally and emotionally ground yourself before moving forward and making decisions in life.
Clear your perspective, making sure the intention of your actions come from an authentic place, knowing deep within that you are making the best decision for yourself.
