Hi, my name is Jacqueline. I'm a 19 year old student majoring in nutrition. I grew up eating nothing but junk food despite the fact that I have been a figure skater my whole life. In May of 2013, I decided I needed to make a life change and started eating better. I discovered my love for fitness and became a certified personal trainer in August of 2013.

July is going to be a tricky month with the grieving for my dog and trying to get myself back on track so I am going to be a little easier on myself this month.

Sunny Yogi’s Guide to Headstands: Inversions do take a lot of time, so don’t be discouraged if you can’t do it! I would also advise this to do this by a wall incase you need help balancing :) Good luck! 

Step One: Child’s Pose

Start out in child’s pose.  This pose is great for lengthening your spine, and giving it a nice stretch before you go into an inversion :) 

Step Two: Get on your knees and forearms, clasp your fingers together. 

Build a strong foundation for your headstand! When you clasp your fingers together your elbows will slightly splay out.  Ground your hands, and elbows to the ground. 

Step Three: Place Head in Palms.

You want to put the part of your head in your palms, where it start to curve to the back of your head. I really hope this makes sense. Try to put your forehead on ground and roll the head rest of the head to fit the palms.  If this still doesn’t make sense, play around with your head positions and find a positioning that is supportive. 

Step Four: Extend out your legs.

If you are a beginner, make sure you have this step down before you continue on with the rest.  When you extend your legs, go on your tippy toes and straighten out your back.  Your back should be perpendicular to the floor.  Usually for me in this pose, when I’m on this step, I can feel my body trying to find it’s sense of balance.  

Step Five: With control send one leg up. 

Again, if you are a beginner, you might want to practice this a little bit. Make sure your core is engaged. 

Step Six: Slowly lift up other leg. Find your balance! 

Use this step to make sure you are properly balanced. Make sure your arms and core are engaged.  Make sure your back is straight, and your head and neck feel comfortable. If not, get out of this pose, you don’t want to hurt yourself! 

Step Seven: When ready, straighten out your legs! Extend! 

Engage that core, make sure your elbows and hands are rooted.  When you get here you might sway a little bit, but don’t be scared. Just try to use your legs/feet to try to balance you :) 

Good luck with this pose! Remember, don’t be discouraged if you can’t do this pose.  Do NOT try to force your body to do something it’s not ready to do.  Core exercises and arm exercises are a great way to get your body ready for inversions. 

Feel free to send me pictures/videos/ comments about your progress. Also let me know if you need further help! Namaste :)

Get to know whit—-gets—-fit!
Name: Whitney
Age: 21Country: USA1. What is your favorite food? It’s a toss-up between strawberries and pasta with just salt, pepper, and butter.

2. What are some of your hobbies? I play guitar & sing, paint, and do Zumba.
3. What are your favorite shows? Pretty Little Liars, The Fosters, FlashForward, Friends, and The Office
4. Who is your favorite band/singer? Probably a tie between Hunter Hayes, Of Monsters and Men and Phil Wickham (a Christian artist)

5. What is your favorite movie? Honestly? The Lion King. haha

6. What is your favorite sport to play? To watch? Play: Basketball, Watch: Hockey

7. What is your least favorite exercise? BURPEES & running. I have a bad knee and running is really hard on it.

8. What is one interesting fact about you? I’ll give you 3! I was born with a broken collar bone, I can wiggle my ears, & my favorite afternoon snack is a peanut butter and m&m sandwich.

9. What is your favorite color? Purple

10. What is your favorite way to relax? Hot showers & netflix binges

11. If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be? Greece probably. But I don’t know.. I want to go everywhere! Probably somewhere tropical though :)

12. If you could meet any celebrity who would it be and why? I’m not really a huge fan for any one celeb. I guess it would be pretty cool to meet Tom Hanks. I like every movie he has ever been in. But honestly, I think of celebs as just normal people. I don’t dive into the latest celebrity news or gossip. They have their life & I have mine. I’ve never really dreamed of meeting anyone specific. I wouldn’t mind a guitar lesson from Taylor Swift though. :)

13. What made you choose to live a healthy lifestyle? A little less than a year ago I lost my job, got very depressed, and gained A LOT of weight. I hated my body and all the things it couldn’t do anymore. One day I looked in the mirror and realized the only thing stopping me from being happy was myself.

14. Why did you join tumblr? I somehow stumbled acrosstonedbellyplease while searching for “fast and easy weight loss”. Her blog had so many amazing resources, I learned so much. Her blog got me back up on my feet and moved me in the right direction for a healthy life. I spent several weeks educating myself on sustainable weight loss and then decided I wanted to join tumblr to connect with other people on the same journey as me and also to help others achieve general health and wellness and self-acceptance.
15. What is the best advice you have ever received? “Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it… the time will pass anyway”.
