For my yoga students, and anyone who is using their hands to ground themselves and invert the body :)
When I started to practice handstands and arm balances, I enjoyed and appreciated all the verbal cues and instruction from other teachers and students. I am lucky to live in a city where you can learn ANYTHING you want. For the sake of this post, when I wanted to learn handstands, I attended every class, workshop, online event I could (and still do!). I repeated what I learned over and over again, in a deliberate practice.
This began a intense study of body mechanics, and how the body moves with power and grace anatomically. Eventually my eyes glanced at a handstand diagram on a google search, and that was the key to unlocking new progress within my inversion practice.
I put together what I learned from a few diagrams. Feel free to reach out with any questions!
