August 31, 2014 at 8:08 am

Great idea!! I’m going to do it!!

August 31, 2014 at 9:54 am

I’ve gotta start doing this ASAP!

September 1, 2014 at 2:04 pm

Paper plates work great on carpet too. But do not last as long!!!

September 1, 2014 at 2:39 pm

One day I am going to do this and my feet are going to magically lift off the floor… πŸ™‚

Those I could do haha. I can jump and hold just not pull up but I’m getting PIYO certified I believe so then I’ll have better yoga and core strength haha

Great Idea – thank you

September 5, 2014 at 10:43 am

Jessica Heather Jimmy This is what my goal is. πŸ™‚

September 5, 2014 at 8:21 pm

Try the plastic disposable plates. They’ll hold up a little better and they’re pretty slick.

September 5, 2014 at 9:04 pm

I’ll try this, too!

September 5, 2014 at 10:39 pm

Cool. Nice tip. Seems like you could use a frisbee also…

September 5, 2014 at 11:01 pm

September 5, 2014 at 11:08 pm

Oh man, that looks intense and I wanna do it!!

September 5, 2014 at 11:16 pm

I can do this from a head
head stand but my wrists burn when supporting my body. Years of gymnastics and working as a waitress have taken their toll on my wrists. Is there any hope of not experiencing pain when attempting these type poses?

    September 20, 2014 at 10:32 am

    Hi Karie! First, my apologies it’s taken this long to respond to your question… I don’t have a concrete answer for you, but I do have a few ideas of where you might look for support.
    1. If you haven’t done it already, it might be worth at least speaking with a physical therapist to see if they can help.
    2. Or, you could look for someone who does yoga therapy. Some Iyengar teachers in particular have training specifically in healing through yoga. Or you can check out Tiffany Cruikshank’s website ( to see if you can find a local teacher.
    3. A good friend of mine had severe tendonitis in her wrists. She did something called Scenar Therapy and the pain was gone in one session. It’s very popular in a number of other countries and is just starting to hit the scene here in the U.S. My husband is actually going to head to NYC sometime soon to try it out on his ankle injury…
    I hope that helps and that you find some relief from the pain soon!
    Cheers & Namaste,

Melissa Costa we need to get these!!!

September 7, 2014 at 9:43 pm


September 8, 2014 at 1:20 am

September 8, 2014 at 1:20 pm

This tip is awesome!!!!

September 8, 2014 at 5:58 pm

Thanks for sharing!

September 8, 2014 at 10:52 pm

These sliders are so cool! I picked them up a few weeks ago after seeing them in a video on Instagram. They are so great for a h*******e ab and butt workout. Thanks for the ideas on how to apply them to help with inversions!

September 9, 2014 at 10:51 pm

I will try. I need to build my core

September 11, 2014 at 3:27 pm

you can also use a magazine or book on a rug, it slides the same. On wood floor a blanket works just as well.

September 12, 2014 at 10:18 am


September 12, 2014 at 10:27 am


September 12, 2014 at 10:48 am

Great idea πŸ™‚

September 12, 2014 at 5:39 pm

Porsche VanBrocklin Fischer this was the video I was telling u about!

September 16, 2014 at 9:17 pm

Al Cavagnero, can you do this?

September 16, 2014 at 9:21 pm

Not yet but workin on it πŸ™‚

September 17, 2014 at 1:53 pm

Jayme You can do this with a blanket on a hard floor too!! I need to make this a regular part of my practice. Thanks lady

September 18, 2014 at 11:04 pm

Sure…I can do that…

September 19, 2014 at 12:44 pm

This works well with a phisio ball as well as smaller weighted balls

September 19, 2014 at 9:53 pm

She made that look so possible I actually just tried it fully expecting to float into it beautifully. Lol

September 20, 2014 at 11:16 am

I can barely hear what she is saying for some reason. Looks like a great ab move! I have hardwood floors so I might try a cloth under my feet first.

September 22, 2014 at 5:39 pm

Sean G. Kennedy to help us reach our goal.

September 25, 2014 at 8:10 am

Now just tell me how to balance in a handstand….

September 26, 2014 at 8:28 pm

September 27, 2014 at 2:23 am


September 28, 2014 at 8:59 am

Ok, this is fabulous! I’m trying ASAP.

October 2, 2014 at 8:18 pm

October 2, 2014 at 10:02 pm

October 5, 2014 at 6:55 pm

October 5, 2014 at 10:23 pm

October 7, 2014 at 2:07 am

Sliders? … How about a pair of socks and some Pledge?

October 8, 2014 at 12:41 am

I went and and got these last week after watching this – magic…..

October 8, 2014 at 12:49 pm

Lindsay Buster…here’s that video

October 11, 2014 at 11:32 pm

Stand against the wall first then slowly tilt both legs away from wall to front. Take time.

October 13, 2014 at 10:18 am

October 18, 2014 at 12:09 am

October 20, 2014 at 8:29 pm

October 24, 2014 at 9:00 am

Thank you, Lauren.

October 27, 2014 at 11:38 pm

This looks like it would work really well to strengthen your core.

October 29, 2014 at 1:22 am

Claudia Olson. I think I might have to give this a try

October 31, 2014 at 6:10 am

This is awesome! I do this exercise with my long board (Skate board) πŸ™‚

November 3, 2014 at 11:40 am

Somehow I don’t think this is going to happen for me Jackie-but I’d try it!!

November 4, 2014 at 9:05 pm

Love it. It looks so amazingly easy and so effortless. I cannot raise my legs higher than my b***s. Very challenging but I WILL get this.

November 5, 2014 at 4:47 pm

How do you open this video! Cannot find the link and keep getting pop ups.

November 8, 2014 at 9:09 am

Jamie I need this SOOO bad, but I can’t get the video to open

November 8, 2014 at 1:37 pm

November 8, 2014 at 1:37 pm

November 10, 2014 at 7:18 am

Same here

November 10, 2014 at 7:19 am

All I see is ads πŸ™

November 10, 2014 at 1:30 pm

I’m so sorry to hear that, Chris & Lisa! I’m guessing there were some server issues going on. I just tested it and it worked well for me. Hopefully you can get there now. Thanks for taking the time to let us know!

November 10, 2014 at 1:32 pm

I’m sorry you had trouble seeing it, Lu. I’m guessing there were some server issues going on. I just tested it and it worked well for me. Hopefully you can get there now. Thanks for taking the time to let us know!

November 10, 2014 at 1:33 pm

I’m sorry you had trouble seeing it, Marissa. I’m guessing there were some server issues going on. I just tested it and it worked well for me. Hopefully you can get there now. Thanks for taking the time to let us know!

November 12, 2014 at 1:13 pm

The video is on the 2nd page, so you have to click “Next Page” to see it.

November 14, 2014 at 12:35 am

did you try click on the “Next Page”?

November 17, 2014 at 3:04 pm


November 17, 2014 at 9:27 pm

Is that you Molly McLeod McDonald

November 17, 2014 at 10:36 pm

Or, use socks on hard wood floor. Same effect;)

November 22, 2014 at 2:53 am


November 22, 2014 at 11:23 am

You have to click the button that says “next page” and it will take you right to the you tube video after you scroll down πŸ™‚

I had the same issue at first.

November 26, 2014 at 12:20 am

I couldn’t watch it either!

November 26, 2014 at 1:58 pm

Great exercise! Working on it!

November 28, 2014 at 5:06 pm

This is genius!

November 30, 2014 at 5:30 pm

Jillian MacMath this is a good one too. Lindsey Mac Math Kelly MacMath

December 1, 2014 at 11:46 pm

Deanna Stever, try it on your hardwood floor with a towel.

December 2, 2014 at 10:25 am

I can’t open it damnit

December 2, 2014 at 3:53 pm


December 3, 2014 at 12:50 am

Vytas Baskauskas gives this instruction plus many other ways to strengthen your core for handstand on Just fyi.

December 4, 2014 at 11:59 am

This is very familiar to me and works! Thanks to Krishna Sikhwal

December 4, 2014 at 2:28 pm

Pledge, paper plates, etc. whatever it takes! I wanna be able to float into a handstand too! So addin’ this to my practice!

December 4, 2014 at 6:16 pm

Struggling with finding video

December 4, 2014 at 6:43 pm

Cheryl Allyn Shecrallah click where it says next page and you will find the video there.

December 4, 2014 at 11:16 pm

um yeah, you have to click on this link to search through adds and photos of junk to find the very small ‘next page’ link and then click on that. why they do not send the page with the video on it is beyond me?

December 4, 2014 at 11:19 pm

Please post the link with the actual video on it. Not everyone wishes to go on a small hunt past the ads and photos to view what is being shared. It’s a great way to lose viewers.

December 4, 2014 at 11:21 pm

There are no server issues – you have to around your t***y to get to your elbow and locate the little ‘next page’ link in between the ads and photos on the page. I do not understand why it is so difficult to post a direct link? I’m all for a good search and find on my own time, but when given a link – I expect to be taken directly to that link – you know?

December 5, 2014 at 10:22 pm

That’s a great idea

December 6, 2014 at 9:56 am

Furniture sliders are cheaper at Walmart. I am definitely going to get on this asap!

December 12, 2014 at 11:44 am

Learned hands on with David Swenson long ago. I bet we went from down dog to handstand 50 times that day. Good stuff.

December 12, 2014 at 12:21 pm

great tips!

December 12, 2014 at 9:11 pm

I want to learn to float so bad. I can feel it.

December 14, 2014 at 1:28 am


December 16, 2014 at 12:33 am

Great idea..I have trouble in the Chatarunga…weak in the head of my biceps area making it hard to hold Chatarunga. I backed off and am trying to do wall push ups with my elbows tight to my side. (no problems doing floor push ups with my arms wide). Any suggestions on how to strengthen my shoulders/biceps, so I can progress to this exercise?

December 26, 2014 at 12:23 pm

Not anymore!!

December 26, 2014 at 12:37 pm

I have not set any goals for the year… Lol, this is my ONLY one!!!!

December 28, 2014 at 1:34 pm

im too weak now…. i need a spotter.

December 28, 2014 at 11:55 pm

Boppers! Mallory

I get an ad for Kelley Blue Book and no way to close it.

January 11, 2015 at 10:45 pm

Trying to load the video I got a suspicious download. PLEASE share your video next time. The likely hood I would revisit your website would be higher if you did.

January 11, 2015 at 11:09 pm

Yikes. That page took me to a virus-y page (sketchy and trying to get me to download something). Not cool.

January 12, 2015 at 3:26 pm

Just looked at this today! I need to work on balance!!
