Advance Your Practice: Confidence! Handstand in the Center of the Room

Available worldwide

This is a well-aligned and dynamic vinyasa tutorial taught by Shannon Paige. This practice is based on the wisdom of strength and container-ship in asana form and transition before any application of momentum. This practice is geared towards pulling practices of handstand away from the wall and confidently into the center of the room, without a partner. The trick is that there are many tips for alignment and brain conversation to build the skill set needed. By practicing in this method, watch your confidence bloom and your handstand STICK in the center of the room!

Contraindications: wrists, elbows, and shoulder injuries

Thank you Shannon. I loved this practice. I really appreciate how much effort and instruction you put into your teaching. I also love your the link to yoga philosophy and deep learning that can be taken off the mat and into everyday life. Namaste

This was great, realistic people and great approach to being brave in the centre of the room, also love the anatomical cues. Thank you

I enjoyed this class and the process of short circuiting the brain to break up the challenging handstand pose also great cue's.
Namaste, :)
