Re-post by popular demand! Handstands 101.There are many ways to get into a handstand; but this is one of the most basic, easily accessible ways.
Begin in Downward-Facing Dog. Step one foot in about half way, and lean forward until you have your shoulders stacked right above your wrists. Spread your fingers wide, and keep a very very slight outward rotation of the wrists (you want the index finger to point forward). Now lift the back leg up, rotate the toes down and make sure to keep the leg straight. Firm the upper arms – hug the bicep to the bone and draw the triceps towards the ribcage. Relax the shoulder blades down the back and widen the space between the collar bones. Lower ribs pull in towards to pubic bone, and find a slight engagement of the core.
Keep the upper arms firm and the gaze between your index fingers as you bend the standing leg deeply. When you kick up, you want to use the strength of the bent knee (the leg still on the floor), so without swinging or lunging the leg that’s up in the air (that’s a thunderbolt leg!). That strong, straight top leg will help pull your hips up over the shoulders. Begin with tiny little kicks, just focusing on getting the standing foot off the floor and inch or so (you can of course practice this in front off a wall until you feel comfortable to try it in the middle of the room), drawing the heel in towards the sit bone with every kick. Think hips over shoulders, and little by little work your way towards catching the hand balance with the one knee hugging in towards the chest.
Once you catch it, extend the leg up towards the sky and align the body with the ankles over the hips, hips over the shoulders and shoulders over the wrists. Think bellybutton to the spine and lower ribs IN, like your zipping up your core to access all the strength from there. While in your handstand, make sure you get your shoulders off your neck and tuck the tailbone under. A teacher once told me a handstand is essentially a backbend in the upper body and a forward fold in the lower body – this has helped me greatly. When you’ve practiced a couple of times, come back to Downward-Facing Dog and practice kicking up with the other leg first. Remember - we all begin from where we are and the time to start is now! Have fun and focus on alignment, damnit!😊❤
