Just like building a house, you need to lay the foundation before you can move forward, and the same applies for learning how to handstand.
If you want a solid (and safe) handstand practice, it’s important to build a strong foundation first. This free yoga class does precisely that!
Strength and range of motion in your shoulders is essential for learning how to handstand. In this free yoga class, you will learn anatomy and techniques to strengthen your shoulders and increase your shoulder mobility.
Why Shoulder Mobility and Strength Are Key for Handstands
When we just start out on our handstand journey, we often don’t realize everything that goes into a solid handstand practice.
One of the main things that gets overlooked is shoulder strength. Shoulder strength – and range of motion – is key for a successful handstand. Without these key components, your shoulders won’t be able to support your weight or allow you to hold a handstand.
With more strength and increased mobility, you will also help prevent injury and decrease your likelihood of falling.
