Handstands are an enormous mountain to summit in your yoga practice…
The view from the top is spectacular, but the journey you must travel to get there is truly the best and most beneficial part. Having a peak pose as a goal is excellent, but all the things you must learn, develop, and master before are much more practical than the goal itself. To handstand, you must develop strength and mobility throughout your entire body! Preparing each joint for this movement will increase joint health, mobility, and reduce injury potential. Handstands are fun to practice but building strong joints that will increase longevity and reduce injury sounds like a much bigger reward!
This series is broken down into shorter videos that explain the primary joint movements and offer exercises to strengthen and mobilize these joints. It includes a longer flow practice to bring everything together and practice getting upside down. I also added some wall drills to help build strength and a recovery video at the end!
This package includes the following videos:
- Wrists (12 mins)
- Elbows (6 mins)
- Shoulders (12)
- Spine (9 mins)
- Hips (9 mins)
- Toes (5 mins)
- Flow (44 mins)
- Wall Drills (12 mins)
- Puppy Press (21 mins)
- Recovery (16 mins)
Let’s embark on this adventure together and remember that the PATH truly is the GOAL for the journey to handstands.
