The idea here, then, is to land the feet a little lower each time and then flip back out. I tried to string a couple together as if I was going all the way.
...and here's what I'm aiming, the marvelous Laruga from her blog Peaceloveyoga. There are a lot of videos of this on Youtube, I like this one best because of it's elegance and how she brings here legs low towards her head before dropping her feet to the mat.
The ones where people drop to the mat all the way from an erect handstand scare the hell out of me.
As you can see I have a LONG way to go.
The plan is to work on this exercise a little each night and then move on to the next exercise as and when David posts it, think he mentions it's in three parts. I'm labeling it 1.1, Exercise 1, day 1.
