This Week In Nithya Priyan School of Yoga: Handstand Hangtime

This week in Nithya Priyan School of Yoga, Straight Arm Inversions require a stable and strong shoulder girdle and an activated core. Correct alignment and placement of wrists as the foundations of the inversion also needs to be understood for safe practice without undue risk of wrist or shoulder strain. Lastly, mobile and open shoulders and hips contribute to the ease of entering and exiting. From the staple pose of downward dog, we work our way up to a full Handstand this week! See you on the mats.
