Pause & Pose: Handstand

Handstand Variation

Adho Mukha Vrksasana

Level 3


Handstand strengthens your shoulders, arms, and wrists while improving balance and reversing the negative effects of gravity. This pose will also help to calm the brain and relieve stress.

Honest Tip:

When trying to find balance in this pose start by stacking from your hands up. Stack your shoulders over wrists, your ribs over your shoulders, and your hips over your ribs. If you can’t find the balance use a wall behind your legs for support.
