Ironically, me and my yoga teacher friend Kristin Olson (check her out over at the K.O. Yoga blog and read her post on the Top 10 Reasons that Handstands are Awesome!) both got our press to handstand the very same night at my friends Brock Cahill’s class over at Yogis Anonymous. I have always been told that good things happen in three’s, so I guess that means you are next!
In this video I do a press handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) to crow pose (Bakasana). Handstand press is something that I have wanted to get for quite sometime now and I am so stoked! The key to the press is shoulder integration, full external rotation of the arm bones, and core strength. I am extremely fortunate to have amazing teachers like Brock and Krista Cahill who have guided me all the way. Anything is possible with steady practice, determination and a little faith. What are some poses or transitions that you would like to know more about? I would love to know!
