Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of handstand do we learn?
I want to make it clear off the bat that Dawn & I are teaching how to do a yoga handstand, not a CrossFit or gymnastics handstand. We are really diving into the mind, body, soul connection, & you will find that this program is about much more than just balancing upside down.
How long is this program?
While there is a progressional order in which you are meant to flow through this course, there is no timeline! You are meant to take it at your own pace & fit the drills & the lessons into your routine however & whenever your time & body allows it.
How often should I be practicing the handstand drills/taking the classes?
As often as you’d like to! You can take a few minutes every day to practice handstands, as long as your body & mind are in a stable place. Consistency is key & the more time you spend upside down, the easier it becomes.
Should I practice my handstands before or after my workout of the day?
This is totally up to you. I don’t recommend practicing your handstand if your muscles are super sore & fatigued, though. Make sure you are always warmed up properly.
