Power yoga is my workout of choice. Within the practice, there are many opportunities for inversions:  Crow position, headstands, handstands, flying pigeon to name a few.   I can press up to a headstand and can kick up to a handstand but I’m unable to pop up from downward dog into handstand… Yet!  Click here for demo.  Therefore I’m officially making 2016 the year of the pop up handstand.



In an earlier Yule Blog Post, I unknowingly committed to a New Year’s resolution.

What will I start…  

I work as a middle level math coach.  One of my schools has a peer tutoring program. Each day, the peer tutors convene by my office each day to check in with their advisor before heading to the local elementary school. I’m not sure what they do once at the elementary school, but it finally dawned on me to ask.
Being a math coach, I’m always looking for ways to positively promote math.  This Peer Tutoring program could possibly be one of those ways. Once break concludes, I’ll learn about the program’s structure and then find a way to integrate a math component 🙂
