Most yogis consider handstand, adho mukha vrksasana, an extremely difficult and advanced asana. Although it requires considerable strength, agility, and stamina, it can be just as elemental to your practice as plank or downward-facing dog. We will cover the fundamental alignment points of handstand through a study of the dynamic and interconnected movements of the yoga vinyasa, particularly down dog, plank, and chaturanga. The next step in finding the balance point and alignment in your handstand practice. We break down key principles for shifting out of our comfort zone and into the exhilaration and light point of balance “nothing brings me more into the present moment than the feeling of a straight up handstand”
Open to all students with a regular practice and teachers of all levels.
