Asana Lab: Handstand

with Jessica Stickler

Learn the “yoga nerd” (aka biomechanics-based) approach to handstand. In this short but packed tutorial, you’ll start with the wrists and work up the body, learning how to use alignment, muscular activation, and props to feel the key actions of the pose. Note the heat in your forearms, the stability of your shoulders, the lengthening through your torso, and the power of your legs as you refine your “kick” up into adho mukha vrksasana. And when you’re ready, take it away from the wall!
