handstand challenge – adho mukha vrksasana

Head down, feet up. I spent quite some hours in a day upside down. I don’t know what it is, but it gives a kind of rush to go into headstand, Pincha Mayurasana (peacock pose) of handstand. The first I mange, the second I’m getting there, the third I’m pretty shit at. I’m working on it, getting in it, but I’m still far away from controlling it. At the last PaasCro Yoga festival (for Acro Yogi’s) I did a workshop with Marius Weerts. This guy is really amazing. He can actually explain how to do a handstand, being in a handstand. One of the things he told us, is that it takes a month to learn a headstand, a year to learn a handstand and five years to do a handstand on one hand. So for me is 2015 the year of the handstand

It simple means that I’m going to try to do at least ten handstands every day. Sometimes they will be included in my practice, sometimes I will just do them, waiting on a mini-bus here in Nicaragua, sometimes I will do them before I go to bed and sometimes I will just step away from my desk and do them here in the office at La Mariposa Spanish school and Eco hotel. The first ten, I’m going to do now. Will you join me this year?

In Sanskrit handstand is known as Adho Mukha Vrksasana: tree pose with the face down.

Benefits:
-good development of the whole body

-strengthening shoulders, arms and wrists

-opens the chest
