before you date a girl with a mental illness, remember: saying, “you’re beautiful” won’t balance the chemicals in her brain.

and don’t fucking say, “i’ll be here for you, no matter what,” if you don’t mean it.

don’t think you’re fixing her by saying, “i love you.” because you’re not

This needs more notes.

All of it, but mostly the bolded

Sunny Yogi’s Guide to Headstands: Inversions do take a lot of time, so don’t be discouraged if you can’t do it! I would also advise this to do this by a wall incase you need help balancing :) Good luck! 

Step One: Child’s Pose

Start out in child’s pose.  This pose is great for lengthening your spine, and giving it a nice stretch before you go into an inversion :) 

Step Two: Get on your knees and forearms, clasp your fingers together. 

Build a strong foundation for your headstand! When you clasp your fingers together your elbows will slightly splay out.  Ground your hands, and elbows to the ground. 

Step Three: Place Head in Palms.

You want to put the part of your head in your palms, where it start to curve to the back of your head. I really hope this makes sense. Try to put your forehead on ground and roll the head rest of the head to fit the palms.  If this still doesn’t make sense, play around with your head positions and find a positioning that is supportive. 

Step Four: Extend out your legs.

If you are a beginner, make sure you have this step down before you continue on with the rest.  When you extend your legs, go on your tippy toes and straighten out your back.  Your back should be perpendicular to the floor.  Usually for me in this pose, when I’m on this step, I can feel my body trying to find it’s sense of balance.  

Step Five: With control send one leg up. 

Again, if you are a beginner, you might want to practice this a little bit. Make sure your core is engaged. 

Step Six: Slowly lift up other leg. Find your balance! 

Use this step to make sure you are properly balanced. Make sure your arms and core are engaged.  Make sure your back is straight, and your head and neck feel comfortable. If not, get out of this pose, you don’t want to hurt yourself! 

Step Seven: When ready, straighten out your legs! Extend! 

Engage that core, make sure your elbows and hands are rooted.  When you get here you might sway a little bit, but don’t be scared. Just try to use your legs/feet to try to balance you :) 

Good luck with this pose! Remember, don’t be discouraged if you can’t do this pose.  Do NOT try to force your body to do something it’s not ready to do.  Core exercises and arm exercises are a great way to get your body ready for inversions. 

Feel free to send me pictures/videos/ comments of your progress. Also let me know if you need further help! Namaste :)

Thank you for the step by step instructions
