Handstand Tutorial Part 3: Finding Handstand in Plank Pose with Marysia Weiss and Angela Kukhahn

In Part 3 of this Handstand tutorial video series (watch Part 1 Handstand Prep, and Part 2 Handstanding Principles in Tadasana to deepen the knowledge of what you will learn here) me and my good friend Marysia Weiss (yogi, teacher and co-author of THEHotandHealthy Blog) talk about the principles of alignement in Plank pose and Handstand (Adho Muhka Vrksasana) and their similarities.

So in essence you can practice these principles every time you arrive in plank pose as a way to build strength, and the muscle memory in your body in preparation for handstand! Enjoy!

Many thanks to my good friend and local wellness coach Sean Trace who did the filming of this video and to Yogis Anonymous for letting us film there!

Handstanding Home Practice via Yogis Anonymous Website

Nothing is better than being able to cook yummy dinner and practice with your favorite yoga teacher at the same time. I am only kind of kidding. In this video I had stuff simmering on the stove and realized I couldn’t leave to go to yoga class so I brought the yoga class to me! Thanks to Yogis Anonymous and Krista Cahill (Whose voice you can hear in the video) I had one rockin’ home practice without ever leaving my kitchen,…oh yeah, and dinner tasted delicious as well!

Can’t make yoga class? No problemo…try these sites and vinyasa to your hearts delight!
