      Achieving Steadiness in Handstands

      Saturday June 4 4-6pm $30 advance $35 at door Handstands are the cornerstone of many branches of acrobatics, used by Sports Acrobats, contortionists, gymnasts, and hand-balancers. Amongst yoga practitioners, the handstand is known as Adho Mukha Vrksasana: downward facing tree pose, emphasizing the strength and rootedness of this pose. In this workshop, we will use the secrets of the acrobat to turn our world upside down. We will discuss proper alignment and how this leads to steadiness and control. We will also discuss the variety of handstands as seen in sports and performance, and we will learn multiple methods of coming into and out of a handstand. A spotter is one of the best tools we can use to help us perfect our alignment, and we will learn spotting techniques in a supportive environment to help overcome fear and improve communication. We increase our fire with conditioning exercises specifically for handstands. By the end of class, you will have a training regimen for your handstand. Our emphasis is on finding equanimity in the pose, training mindfully, but effectively, and whether we ever perfect a handstand or not, we strengthen our core, enliven our being, and enjoy the process. Tanya’s Bio: Tanya’s love affair with yoga began in 2000 with a Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga VHS tape. She completed the Himalayan Institute 200 hour teacher training in Honesdale, PA in 2003 and went on to complete the 500 hour training in India in 2004 where she practiced yoga in the morning sun over the Ganges River and visited the historic sites of the birthplace of yoga. In 2008, Tanya decided to run away to circus training and began practicing partner acrobatics and fell in love with handstands. She has since trained extensively in the tradition of hand balancing with professional handbalancers from around the world.
