I just completed the Upper Body Strength Series, and I'm working my way towards Hand Stands. I think I have a fear of falling over :o But I'm ready to face that fear. I enjoyed the instruction in this sequence and will be practicing this for the entire week before moving onto 'Meet headstand'! Because I really need to! Thank you Mel, great work!

This is a very nice practice to test your upper back and shoulders. I actually had more openness and strength then I knew about. I'm going to give the actually headstand a try... Thank you Melanie, I really enjoy your calming voice and great instructions.
Focus on safety and integrity of the foundation

Melanie, I have taken many of your classes and sometimes just watch your tutorials because I love how you cue the poses and teach us where to place every body part. Your focus on alignment and safety in this preparatory sequence is so spot on and I will definitely use these same exercises for headstand preparation in class tomorrow.
