*PRESS HANDSTAND REFINEMENT* .
Before you seriously analyze this video and realize just unrefined my press is, let me preface this by saying, I have a long ways to go! Prior to hurting my shoulder back in November I noticed that I was leaning to my left, my right leg would take off before my left leg and then once I was up my right hip/leg would hike up, as the left side of my waist would collapse. As I am getting back to my press handstand practice I am trying to be mindful of the imbalances I might be cultivating. It is such a tough pose and takes SUCH a loooooooooong time to achieve that I think it is easy to dismiss these things even if we become aware of them. 🤔 The problem is, they can have some serious consequences if not dealt with appropriately! .
Here is what I do to work on trying to even things out a bit: .
🤸♀️Take some of the weight off by lifting your feet up. I was lucky enough to have these cool BRIK blocks from the kind people of @infinitystrap strap, but if you don’t have blocks or BRIKS, use anything handy. Just make sure both sides are even. .
🤸♀️Place a strap above your elbows. This @infinitystrap is a dream, no adjusting required, just slip it on and go, but any strap will do. Thick ones tend to work better! .
Once you are all geared up and ready to go set your phone in your sneaker Tripod (serisously sticking your phone in a shoe is the best makeshift tripod ever!) and record your press. Look for uneven hands, uneven shoulders, one shoulder pushing or rolling forward, elbows bending, one leg taking off faster than the other, one hip lifting higher, legs moving at different speeds, one leg more turned out than the other, one side waist bending, the glutes activating differently. If all is well start to remove the props and try it again.
If it is pretty bad add support and refine it until you are balanced, then start to remove the support as you improve. Your body will thank you! ❤️#yoga#presshandstand#inversiondrills#yogatutorial#handstand#practicenotperfection#yogapractice#inversion#yogavideo
