Have you ever been in that yoga class, when the teacher starts prepping you to go into a handstand, and you have absolutely no idea what to do? Normally, the instructor asks those that are inexperienced to skip that part. But then how do you learn? These progressive workouts will help you get to your perfect pose.
But please remember, a full handstand takes time to perfect so don't expect results overnight, and work with a personal trainer for personalized guidance.
This 40-minute yoga routine will build up the fundamentals and get you ready for a handstand prep pose. This workout with instructor Lesley Fightmaster is designed to build shoulder and abdominal strength as well as shoulder flexibility for handstands. The peak pose is "handstand prep" which is a variation of handstand that is more accessible than the full pose. Handstand prep is a wonderful way to get the benefits of handstands without all of the difficulty.
Kino MacGregor will walk you through the steps to get you upside down! When you're ready to work on handstands the easiest way is jump into handstand. You can do this with one leg at a time or with both legs. Your legs can be bent or straight. The most important thing is to have your shoulders locked into aligned and avoid bending your elbows. Keep your body stacked along the center line to feel the connection into your core strength. Draw the lower ribs in and activate the pelvic floor. Most importantly, keep trying!!
