Ok guys, there were a lot of questions on my recent post about how to get into the modified handstand (with the front body facing the wall). So today I recorded this video, showing one way to access that variation, as well as how to start moving your handstand away from the wall once you feel ready. These are two great exercises to help improve alignment and stability in your handstand. 🙌🏼
Start standing, with your back facing the wall & lower your hands to the ground. Lift one foot at a time onto the wall behind you (you do not have to incorporate the splits here 😜).
Slowly walk your hands toward the wall as you wiggle your body closer in. Your feet will be making their way up the wall (so if you want to protect freshly pedicured toes feel free to wear socks, which clearly I did not do, and ended up scuffing some nail polish up... #oops 🙄👣).
Once you are as close to the wall as you can get (or feel comfortable getting), completely straighten your arms, and stack your hips over your shoulders (you can keep your feet on the wall). Practice getting your spine into a hollow position so that there is no sinking in the back. 👍🏼
When you feel ready to handstand without the wall, walk your hands away from, & feet down the wall, turning your body into an upside-down letter 'L'. Keeping the entire body engaged, lift one leg up, and then slowly bring the other leg to meet it. Remember - we want the wrists, shoulders, hips, and ankles all stacked in one line. Inner thighs & glutes should be squeezing together, and hands are actively pushing the ground away. 💪🏼
Heres another tip: try recoding your handstand practice so that you can play it back & see exactly what needs to be modified in your alignment 👌🏼
Did you guys find this helpful? Tag a friend who is learning to handstand, & let me know if you want me to keep sharing more of these tutorials! Also, if you have any specific pose requests, feel free to list them in the comments below. 👇🏼
Happy practicing! 😍

Here's a quote to inspire our day, from one of the women that made a huge input on ballet❤️💃 (I just can't help myself from quoting dancers.... )

I say- great people are the ones who find the way to be themselves in their life.... Hehehe😉

Personally exploring my roots and going back to the source all the time helps me with that

🛤🔥🦂 Day 23 #roadtoscorpion with @cyogalab @livesankalpa it's meant to be #tittibhasanab for day 23 but I've gone for the #forwardfold option instead 🦂🔥🛤🙌🏽 So enjoying the #cyogalab #yogachallenge it's funny though - the more I learn about my body and it's limits the less I seem to know 🤔😂 using a wall helps you take this pose much deeper BTW but remember to breathe as you do it! #dotryit #practiceandalliscoming #practicepracticepractice #practicenotperfection #yogalife #yogalove #yogateacherlife✌🏽 #homepractice #yogapractice #yogapose #yoganz #yoga #yogini #yogagram

Vom posten brauchte ich zur Zeit etwas Abstand, aber vielleicht gibt es ja bald neuen, interessanten Content 💁🏼
Macht es euch fein und habt einen tollen Tag! 💚

Tip: that first leg going up has to be very straight and strong at all times, the leg you kick with will follow nice and soft! It works for me and it's getting me more into a pinchamayurasana! 👌🏼🙃💕 #yoga #pinchamayurasana #yogapose #fitness #yogamat #yogainspiration #yogagirl #yogagram #yogaeverywhere #yogaeverydamnday #yogini #yoginilife #yogaprogress #yogapractice #loveyoga #iloveyoga #yogagram #yogajunkie #yogalifestyle
