Handstand Preparation - Part 2: Connecting Your Legs and Your Core

The video above is only a preview. To watch this and other full length classes, sign up for one of our plans.


Yoga Class Description

Turning upside down is a good practice to see the world in a new way. This class will get your body aligned and toned in the right places for kicking up to handstand. If you are already getting up, it will help you find more lightness and balance. Starting with standing poses to tone and open the legs, we move to new tricks with Navasana (Boat Pose) and Halasana (Plow Pose) to connect your legs with your core and strengthen your stabilizing muscles. You'll need a space at the wall, a blanket, and a slippery floor for part of it, so if you are on carpet a good tip is to use two paper plates. Handstands and upside down work can be physically challenging but they always leave you invigorated, joyful, and with a new outlook on life. This online yoga class was filmed live at Yoga Tree Hayes. (49 mins.)
