Headspace

Testing a pillow for a headstand class. I teach dance classes to youths on weekends. The idea is to invite them to play beyond their comfort zones in a manner that is fun, creative, yet safe. The headstand is a simple move that can get my students to experience seeing the world from a different point of view for a sustained period of time - but in order to do so, they would need proper padding to cushion their heads, as their scalps would not be used to the weight. I think care doesn't just encompass making life easier for another person. Rather, it is about setting ideal conditions for others to embrace, and weather, the discomforts they are bound to face in real life.
