Vrschikasana (scorpion) in 12 simple steps:
3. Do one billion push ups.
7. Fall harder, more often, and finally: with grace.
9. Feel your heart expanding in every direction.
11. Acquire a genetic predisposition for spinal extension.
Nota Bene: Step 11 must be achieved before birth, ergo completion of the 12 steps may occur over several lifetimes.
Also: there is no practical value in being able to put your feet on your head while balancing on your forearms. The value of this skill lies in:
1. Having a dream;
2. Bringing that dream to fruition;
3. Tasting, in the process, the boundlessnes of your own strength.
