I wish I could stroll into my living room, bust out a four minute handbalancing routine, and label it as "just training." Another one of her videos shows her holding a manna, and pressing through to a handstand (see around 1:35; I don't even know how the shoulders do that):

And yes, I'm actually holding that handstand. Get on my level.
