Who are these workouts for (skill-level)?
This is for people who want to start or progress their handstand journey!
What are the goals of the program?
The ultimate goal is to get you confidently handstanding. But besides that, I want to give you the tools you need to understand how to further develop and advance your own practice.
We will first lay the foundations we need and then build on them as we progress.
What do I need to participate in this program?
Mostly just dedication, time, and patience! The only props we will use will be the wall, yoga blocks, an exercise ball, and a bench/box/chair. You’ll want a yoga mat.
How to schedule the program into a week?
Ideally I’d want you practicing your handstands everyday, and/or every time you workout (which is hopefully 3-5x a week).
Going in order, starting with the videos numbering 1, and so forth, do one video from one of the categories every practice (or every day). You don’t want to move too quickly because I give you goals you should aim for to build a foundation before continuing onto the next set of videos.
For example, in one week, you could focus on the three videos that correspond with “1”. So Strength 1, Flexibility Focus 1, and Drill 1. Focus on the elements from those 3 videos even if you’re working out more than 3x a week.
Of course, if you’re familiar to handstands or have a strong foundation you’ll be able to move quicker. But if you’re a beginner, it’s smart to lay a solid foundation so you don’t get frustrated later on.
How to get the best outcome of the program?
Plan on spending 10-20 min everyday (or every time) practicing your handstand work.
CONSISTENCY IS KEY!!
Each video is ideally for AFTER you workout when you’re already warm. Being warm is important!
If you are working out and following it up with some yoga, these drills would be FANTASTIC for after yoga, or if u wanted to replace a portion of your yoga or stretching with your handstand work.
