What is this program designed around?
This program is designed around completing 5 classes per week for around 25-30 minutes each day, for 4-weeks (but you can always repeat this to continue to build strength and improve your arm balances!). I started seeing big changes in my static holds after the first week and I started feeling very confident and safe getting into handstands a few weeks later.
What are the goals of the program?
Build strong foundation (frame of the body)
-Build core strength
-Improve shoulder stability and pressing action for handstands
How to max the results of the program?
- Get proper sleep (8-9 hours a night is a must and what I aim for)
- Dedicated nutrition regime that consists only of wholesome natural ingredients, I try to stay away from dairy and sugar 99% of the time while eating A LOT of whole plant food
- Drink the daily recommendation of water (I aim for 75 ounces) and limit alcohol consumption
-Make sure to allow muscles time to recover
-Drill 5+ times per week. The more consistent you are the faster your handstands will progress
- At least 1 full rest day
What do I need to participate in this program?
-Socks and yoga blocks or books of similar size
-A yoga mat

-The workouts are designed for all levels, as any beginner, intermediate, or advanced level yogi will benefit from this program
-Each session starts with a 5 minute wrist warm-up
-Each session should end with a 2 minute savasana
How long are the workouts?
