Quest for the Press

10:00am - 13:30pm

Without guidance or proper technique, pressing to handstand can feel like an impossible journey, but when

alignment, balance, strength, and technique come together, the press handstand can feel effortless. The workshop

begins with focused and intense conditioning drills that are necessary for a successful press to handstand,

and will also dramatically improve your freestanding handstand. We will cover through lecture and highly specific

drills, with and without partners, on how to understand the sensations of pressing, weight distribution, pelvic

movement, and lift that will later make you successful in your handstand press. We will also cover other

advanced transitions, such as lift and lowers from crow to handstand, crane to handstand, and eka pada

koundinyasana to handstand.
