Handstands Tutorial Part 5: Handstands with an Excercise Ball with Angela Kukhahn and Marysia Weiss

Hopefully you have watched Handstands tutorial Part 1 Handstand Prep, Part 2 Handstand in Mountain Pose (Tadasana), Part 3 Finding Handstand in your Plank Pose, and Part 4 Handstand in Downward Facing Dog to get a good foundation and also we hope you have been practicing the principles of alignement in all of your basic poses while doing your regular yoga practice.

As we know, its about 99% sweat, practice and faith and 1% theory so keep that in mind. I never got to personally meet the amazing father of Ashtanga yoga Pattabhi Jois but I love his saying “Practice, all is coming”. Meaning of course, just DO your practice! Don’t worry over the details, just get on your mat, show up for yourself every day, be earnest and it will happen! Have faith! All the theory in the world won’t help a bit  without a regular, dedicated, faithful practice.

In this short video me and my good friend, yoga teacher and co-author of the Hot and Healthy blog introduce the use of a round excercise ball in helping you in your quest to practice your Handstands away from the wall.

This was first taught to me by beautiful, talented, and legendary Krista Cahill (yes, I said legendary! And if you know her I am sure you feel the same way, this lady knows her yoga!)

The ball is a great tool in training you to get your chest far enough forward to float into handstands with ease and mimmicks the feeling of a press up handstand. Enjoy!

The video was filmed by our good friend and wellness expert Sean Trace at Yogis Anonymous in Santa Monica, CA.
