Handstand Help in 10 Different Ways

Michelle Berman Marchildon

Handstand help is here! Handstand pose is a wonderful teacher for our bodies to see where our practice can use some support. This short video shows ten different ways to practice the pose. One is surely the right way for you! After a quick warm up focusing on the shoulders, core and hamstrings, we are off to the wall. The instructor recommends using a wall so that you are not worried about balancing in the center of the room. We go through ten different techniques, some requiring a partner and some that you can do on your own. The video finishes with a wrist release. It is recommended that you watch the video twice and take notes the first time, rather than try to keep up with the quick pace. Enjoy!
