Handstand Workshop!

Handstand Workshop!


Handstand Workshop today at Aladdin Yoga in Shenzhen! We kick off our 3 Day Weekend Intensive today. Excited to work with these students. There are so many poses you can practice to improve your Handstand. Plank Pose is one of the best warm up poses for Handstand. If you have a solid Plank Pose and a solid Chatturanga (Low Plank) you are strong enough for most arm balances, including the Handstand. See how long you can hold your Plank Pose this weekend. Can you hold for 3 mins? 4 mins? 5 mins? I used to be able to hold the Plank Pose for 8 mins before I’d completely lose my form and fall apart. Some of you remember the days when we used to regularly hold a 5 min Plank Pose in my classes in the Southbay in Los Angeles. The Handstand isn’t an essential pose in yoga. It is great for teaching us core strength and shoulder stability. strength. Handstands take us out of our comfort zone. This means they can teach us courage and be very empowering.

Some more highlights from our Shiva Yoga 200hr RYT Teacher Training Program! I will miss this amazing group of Yogis. I am leaving Wenling today for Shenzhen! I am sad to leave. Leading these trainings is definitely a practice for me. Yoga teaches us so much about concentration, going into the fire, experiencing the present moment, and then letting go, surrendering. This is yoga practice. Over and over again. It’s like that when I lead these intensive Teacher Training Program’s too, just like another practice. It’s been an intense 5 weeks. Incredible focus and concentration. We went deep into the fire. Now, it is time to let go and prepare for the next adventure. Time is always moving forward. Concentrate, go into the fire. Breathe into each moment, live fully, and then let go, let it go, and focus on the next moment. Every ending is a new beginning! Namaste. Lots of love to you, Wenling! See you again soon.
