Start the day with a handstand focused yoga practice. These classes will focus on inversions, core strengthening and flexibility exercises to improve your mental and physical framework. We’ll start by breaking down how to convert Sun Salutations into a daily handstand practice routine.
While there’s no magic pill that will make your handstand practice perfect. There is one thing you can take every day to give you all the balance, strength and flexibility required to hold a perfectly straight handstand in the middle of the room: Daily Sun Salutations.
After our Sun Salutes, we will add some flow and slow burn combinations to our practice. Classes will finish with restorative exercises and a short meditation.
1:30 - 4:00 pm Handstand Practice (Mon to Sat)
Progressive workshop focused on clear understanding of how to create a safe and effective personal practice. Our practices place strong emphasis on learning the correct form, the easiest entrance pathways and effective ways to balance a handstand. You can expect to learn several drills to work on your alignment, strength and balance techniques on the ground, the wall, with a spotter and in the middle of the room.
This progressive series will help you understanding proper warm-up, preparation exercises and drills required to maintain longevity in your handstand practice. Open to all levels, from never-ever-handstand to those that want to improve their current stand.
Practitioners will learn collective drills from day one to five. As your practice develops, drills may become more individualized to help you with your desired handstands goals, skill level and fitness.
