It was my pleasure to teach Handstands again at Red Hot Yoga Surrey! It’s always nice to re-visit a studio and see familiar faces.
This was a 2 hour workshop, slightly longer than my regular 90 minute class. Everybody who enrolled was very capable and made good progress through the session.
Once we’ve finished with the line drills we get into pairs and spot each other for straight Handstands. I always make time in the class to work on yoga style Inversions such as crow variations and forearm stands.
We also do many exercises against the wall, this is a great way of progressing shoulder strength and endurance and also finding balance. I ask everybody to practise both ways faceing towards and away from the wall.
A fun part of every workshop is making time for photographs. This might seem like just vanity, but the reality is – people love to get a photo of themselves doing a great handstand. Let’s face it, this is acrobatics and it’s all about showing off our skills.
I look forward to my next visit to Red Hot Yoga in Guildford.
