Alright, so you’ve kicked up into handstand at the wall … now what? How exactly do you move your handstand away from the wall? Excellent questions.

As with everything in life, the way to build the strength and confidence necessary to handstand in the middle of the room is through repetition. But the Catch-22 is that in order to build familiarity through repetition, you actually have to be able to do the thing that’s repeated. This is often the barrier for people looking to move away from the wall.

In this workshop, we’ll break down the components of a solid handstand away from the wall into specific components and precise techniques that you can actually repeat and practice. We’ll use simple drills to help you support yourself rather than relying on the wall to do it for you.

You’ll learn how to tap into and level-up your inner strength, set more productive boundaries, channel your energy more efficiently, and stabilize and center yourself.

Come experience the life-changing magic of the journey toward a wall-less handstand!

This workshop is appropriate for yogis of any level provided that you’re able to get into and are relatively comfortable in a wall-supported handstand or forearm balance.

PRICING: $29 for early registration (through May 11th) and $35 thereafter. Sign up HERE.

$125 | Yoga Alliance Continuing Education: 5 hours

Empower your practice and teaching with concepts from anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.

Learning anatomy can be incredibly overwhelming, and while the training offered at the 200-hour level provides a solid foundation, it isn’t always enough to give teachers the ability to lead their students confidently and adapt the asana practice to accommodate students with pain and injury concerns.

Using a combination of lecture, discussion, demonstration, and practice, you’ll learn the most up-to-date ways to cue and adapt poses and your sequences for optimal accessibility and sustainability.

In this training, we will:

  • Break down the functional anatomy of the hip in a way that’s useful, clear, and accessible;
  • Explore the latest information on how to prevent and manage the most common hip injuries;
  • Learn to teach your students how to manage their own injuries and discomfort in order to practice yoga; and
  • Gain a working knowledge of the relevant physiological concepts that will enable you to guide your students to the safe and efficient development of greater strength, stability, and mobility within their practice.

This workshop is appropriate for teachers of all styles of yoga and other movement modalities, as well as dedicated students of yoga.
