THEME: Practicing the headstand reminds me of my commitment to put the Divine first. Rooting my feet in heaven aligns me with my spiritual lineage, whose nourishment is available to me here and now. I place my head on the ground as a prostration of gratitude and with the intent to ground my thoughts in my own experience. Lifting up into the headstand, I am connected to the sky, to the light, to the invisible realm that is powerfully life-sustaining. In this position, supported by Heaven and Earth, I find balance. ॐ Dominique
