The fun pose of the day is adho mukha vtksasana or handstand.
mukha = face
vrksa = tree
asana = pose, posture
Today was a steamy 100 degrees, so we didn’t even need to add more heat to our heated flow class this evening.
With the natural heat we had an amazing class – and we started our handstand prep. While I spent my time with my feet on the wall (like the photo below) , I feel like I made a lot of progress!
Before we take you through the steps to handstand, here are just a few of them nay benefits:
- Strengthens the shoulders, arms and wrists
- Improves sense of balance
- Calms the brain
- Relieves stress and mild depression
- Stretches the belly
- Improves circulation
