Change Your Perspective: Preparation for Upside Down

Tamara Hickey

This class focuses on preparation for going upside down in poses like handstand. We'll break down the core actions of Downward Facing Dog, the blueprint pose for Handstand, which will both strengthen and open the chest and shoulder area. For most of us, our daily habitual postures involve reinforcing an upper body that is closed off and/or collapsed. You'll benefit from this work off the mat as well as gain an awareness of patterns in your own posture.
