Very detailed guide !
I saw some of your videos where you did some cartwheels. If someone is interested, I put up a nice guide on the subject here: How to do a cartwheel

On seeing this one again, i love how encouraging you are. It's good to just "give it a go."
Ah this is somewhat depressing for me. I'm STILL working on the HS but this time around I sought actual teachers and have been using their techniques, but it's still a work in progress for me.
Shoulder opening/flexibility is a huge issue for me I've learned, and doesn't allow me to get into the right alignment, so I have to use more back bend or whatever to stay stable. I've had better holds but still randomly kicking up doesn't usually end well. I like to work at it though so even though it's still not happening for me I still like to train toward it. Hopefully I'll be better with it before December!
