Barre Move of the Week!
Can you believe it – my month’s trial of Barre at Triyoga is nearly at an end!
I went for a bit of a scarier move this week – I’m not great at being upside down. For some reason I find it really scary and can’t wait to be the right way up. It’s something I need to work on, and it’s why I’m not totally smooth on this move (there’s quite a loud foot clunk at one point!).
It’s a fantastic move. Strengthening my puny wrists as well as my arms in a handstand/press up position, testing my balance while I raise one leg and strengthening every part of my from my toes to my finger tips. And it does improve my confidence when I achive a move or pose that I’m uncomfortable in. You always have to challenge yourself.
Oh – and all that blood to the head is great for boosting circulation in the skin and improving one’s complexion!
Thanks to teacher Emily Spriggs for teaching me this one.
