Shayna breaks down Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana)

A Level 3 pose, Handstand is exactly as it sounds (standing on your hands).  The translation of Adho Mukha Vrksasana is Upward Facing Tree Pose.  The mother of all yoga inversions, Handstand is both challenging, fun and playful.  It wasn't too long ago when were children that we would try walking on our hand for fun.  Well it's come full circle and here we are again as "grown ups" trying to by playful and carefree and challenge ourselves to once again "walk on our hands".  The goal is always to have fun and not to judge yourself.  So if you are inspired to go upside down than Handstand might just be your thing. Shayna will guide you step by step to get you upside down!
