  1. I’ve been working on headstands and handstands also! It is definitely a goal of mine and I’m better with my headstand. I just posted about headstands, it would be awesome if you checked out my blog! http://stretchinginreno.wordpress.com/
    And I agree with you about the shoulders, I am constantly working mine and hoping that they will be strong enough to get the handstand! Thanks.
