Cultivating The Confidence To Enjoy A Handstand, Tutorial From The Wellness Wahine
Handstands can be empowering and absolutely invigorating! Nothing like flipping your whole world upside down and having every single cell in your body nourished by the offering of it. Wow, how much better can it get?
I L-O-V-E handstands! Let me say it again, I LOOOOVE handstands!
Being a competitive gymnast in my earlier life, I have practiced countless ways of balancing on my hands. Years and years of practice. But the truth be told, back in those days I never was one of those girls that could hold a handstand for days (believe me, some of my gymnast friends could). I was one of those girls that, in handstand competitions that often took place as we waiting for our award ceremonies to begin, would be one of the first girls to find myself back on my feet.
However, fast forward to the present and my handstands are steady. Finding my “sweet spot,” that place where I am weightless in space with my feet over my head, is very familiar to me. Yay!!! What changed was my awareness within my handstand, my mind-body connection, and my enthusiasm for BEing in them.
This summer’s edition of Purple Inc, Hawaiian Lifestyle Magazine, I contributed an article and tutorial on this very subject: The Amazingness of Handstands. In the article, not only do I instruct you through a trust building exercise to cultivate a rockin’ handstand, but I also include some of the awesome benefits of handstands to further encourage your enthusiasm for them too!
Purple Inc. Magazine is full of vibrant colors, tropical vibes and the spirit of aloha. I am certain you will enjoy each and every page of this free, on-line magazine that is created by some very beautiful and creative women on Kauai.
