I thought it felt strange not to see Colleen kick up into her hand stand. Unless, there was something wrong with my video, it just jumped cut to Colleen already in her handstand.

Getting there is part of the journey so I was left scratching my head...I also thought something should of been said about the position of the hands on the floor.

One more point...the hair! I love Rodney and Colleen's hair. They both have a beautiful head of healthy hair but I think it would be easier to see Colleen's neck and shoulder blades if she would put her hair up.

Love this series....still going on to the next one! Thank you!
