Forearm balance

Practicing forearm stand variations.

How to practice doing forearm stands, headstands, and handstands:

∞ practice against a wall

∞ if you must, push your legs up and lean your feet against the wall till you find your balance

∞ activate your core

∞ slowly push your feet away from the wall and find your balance

∞ you may start closer to the wall and when you feel more comfortable, move further and further away

∞ practice is the key, so don’t stop trying!

Good luck!

I have changed my website domain from 3 years of vanillaaddiction.com to thesoltisoul.com ☼

I thought, why change my content and not the title? So, after a long and thoughtful process, I decided on the solti soul.

I enjoy my lifestyle and I breathe my creation – SOLTI Activewear. For those of you who don’t know, SOLTI is a conscious brand that is dedicated to helping the environment by recovering and using waste fabrics to create locally handmade fashion for the active lifestyle. It’s not just about living a cruelty-free life, it’s about making myself and the world I live in a better place.

I know that we are on this planet with deeper and spiritual reasons which I can’t even explain, but we are here breathing, walking, eating, and living on this planet like we own it, as well as all the other creatures we’re supposed to share this planet with. This is what I hope to change. Life is about sharing, giving love, and caring for those in need, and for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Solti soul is me; the person who will fight to bring out more compassion in this world, and the woman behind SOLTI Activewear.

I hope you follow my journey and get inspired to live a rewarding life without harm, cruelty or discrimination.

Energy is only borrowed, one day we will have to give it back. ❤

Ethical activewear by SOLTI

Ethical activewear by SOLTI

 Thank you to my friends and family for helping me create this consciously aware fashion line! It has been a journey!

 SOLTI became an ethical line naturally; honestly, I wasn’t aware with what I was doing, I was just being me in the process. I like to find ways in which I can help others and the environment, and collecting “waste” fabrics just happened to be part of the creation. I found joy in knowing that every piece of “waste” fabric could be turned into something useful and beautiful for someone else, and that it would make even a small difference in the environmental impact.

 I learnt that in China, 26 million tonnes of textile is waste annually! The environmental impact there must be colossal! After visiting landfills here in Cebu, I could just imagine how great our impact to global warming is, and thats when it hit me, I could help make a difference.

 Most of our SOLTI pieces are reversible, which also helps you buy less, store less, and pack less when you travel. In Britain, the average person only wears 70% of the clothing in their wardrobe. 30% is a lot of space wasted!

 “All our textiles have been recovered from fabric cast aside by large manufacturers. This reduces the need for landfill space and lessens water and air pollution. Through our holistic approach, our designs are created with you and the planet in mind.”

 Mix and match your pieces with our individually sold items – SOLTI knows that every body is different and beautiful in their own unique way.

 Though we are focusing on reversible swimwear and activewear clothing at the moment, you can be sure to expect more from SOLTI by the end of the year!

Did you know that each of our Cebuano handmade SOLTI pieces are named after Philippine Islands?
