Let's get upside down today. Wall Handstand and Tripod Headstand, anyone?? ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™€๏ธ
But first! Warm up your core, arms, shoulders + neck. Grab something soft for your head in Tripod, too.
Then try these fun + smart sequences by @ania_75!
โ €
How to: Tripod Headstand
As a preparation for this headstand I recommend to warm up and strengthen your neck (rotation from side to side), the arms and shoulders (Dolphin Pose, Forearm Plank) and the core muscles (Boat Pose, Plank Pose).
It is very important to keep your shoulders and arms engaged and at right angles, like in chatturanga arms (Pic 5, the front view). Your two palms and your head, the only three points of contact on the floor should form an equilateral triangle.
Make sure that your shoulder blades are glued to your back, lengthening your neck. No splaying of the elbows! Place your crown of the head on the floor (not your forehead!) 1. Rabbit Pose as a prep- stay here for at least one min
2-7. Step by step into Tripod Headstand
8. Cool down - Stretch your neck for about 20-30 sec

Yoga

Chakrasana or wheel pose, also known as urdhva dhanurasana or upward bow pose, is a backbend that strengthens the arms and legs and stretches the hip flexors and shoulders. If youโ€™ve felt tired after your asana practice (despite savasana), it might be that you could use a wheel (or two or three). Chakrasana is an exhilarating pose, perhaps due either to the effort it requires or to the fresh view it providesโ€”that of the world behind you, turned upside down.

Safe alignment is always more important than "just doing the pose".
So, let's play Where's Waldo in @martina_sergi 's posts! ๐Ÿ” ๐Ÿ‘€ Instead of finding a striped-shirt man, find the difference between correct + incorrect alignment. What surprises you the most? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

A new way to learn handstand (you wonโ€™t adopt those bad habits of ๐ŸŒ back or lack of proper muscle engagement!!)
โ €
@bradterrellyoga demos several ways to practice s controlled hop into handstand tucks + straddles.
โ €
Anyone elseโ€™s arms tired after watching this? ๐Ÿ˜…
Letโ€™s get on our mats + work! ๐Ÿ’ช
โ €
Would you like to learn how to float to handstand? Are you looking for drills to start holding your handstand? Or are you looking for more core/arm balancing exercises?
Swipe to check out my float to handstand training for beginners.
โ€ข
Floating to handstand is one of the funnest ways to practice the inversion. This tutorial is meant to teach you to start holding two essential poses while inverted, tuck and straddle. These two positions are the best to start with while learning to handstand because they enable you to start feeling your quad to core connection as well as engaging your spinal extensors and low-back muscles. It also keeps you from โ€œbanana-ingโ€ your back as you look to start balancing your hips over your shoulders. So rather then attempting to hold a straight line, begin with these two.
Check out my handstand for beginners tutorial and prepping for handstand tutorials on my page for more ideas on how to handstand! โ€ข
Attempt what you can, if you struggle move to the next exercise and come back to it later! Remember, to not get discouraged if results arenโ€™t there, use that energy to focus and build your practice, falling and failing is all part of the journey!
โ€ข
Share to a friend who wants to start handstanding or a friend who is looking for more ways to get there or a friend who you think might enjoy!
