Conditioning the shoulders for handstands and more

This is the 6th part of a series of classes exploring the Koshas – the 5 layers (or sheaths) of our being. We explore the Vijnanamaya kosha – the sheath of awareness and wisdom. This refers to the discerning and reflective aspects of our consciousness: the ability to differentiate between right and wrong, a sense of conscience and intelligence. It also connects us to intuition and inspiration and that part of ourselves that is already bright and luminous and can guide us on our path.

We continue our exploration of handstand – but without the need for long hamstrings. Lots of shoulder preparation including scapular push ups. And we’ll connect the arm muscles with the side ribs and core to create and integrated internal support structure as a preparation for any arm balancing. I give options and modifications for all levels.
