Build Your Handstand with Sean Robinson

5 – 19 March (Saturdays Only), The Centrium – Central

The handstand (aka adho mukha vrksasana) is one of the most sought-after poses in modern-day Yoga. Why? Because it looks great? Because it requires a perfect balance of strength and flexibility? Whilst both reasons may be true, for me, the real reason is the level of focus it requires and the sensation of stillness it creates. It’s difficult to worry about anything else.

 

In the journey towards handstand, many students obsess over the straight line. In this workshop, we see that the straight line is the result of a long process. There are many more accessible (and important) shapes that come before the straight line.

Session 1: Handstands at The Wall – Stamina
Saturday, 5 March
10:00am – 12:30pm
Before we consider entering handstand dynamically, we must first establish the shape(s).
 
Used properly, the wall is your best friend. It removes the element of balance, allowing you to build confidence, form and stamina upside down.
 
Used incorrectly it can become your worst enemy, stunting your progress to hand-standing in the middle of the room.
 
We will learn multiple ways of using the wall to rehearse different shapes – including, but not exclusive to – tuck, L-shape, straddle, split leg.
 
Session 2: Entering & Exiting - Balance
Saturday, 12 March
10:00am – 12:30pm
Much focus is placed on the finished product, aka "the straight line", without considering the entrance and exit – which is where most of the strength and skill is established.
 
Balance is not something we find. It is something we create.
 
By focusing on the entrance and exit (or the journey), the handstand (or the destination) is reached more consistently.
 
Multiple entrances will be covered – tuck, scissor leg, split leg, straddle and frog hips to name just a few,
 
Prerequisites: Not suitable for beginners to Yoga but suitable for those new to inversions and with an existing yoga practice.
 
Session 3: Pressing In & Out
Saturday, 19 March
10:00am – 12:30pm
The press to handstand is the ultimate marriage of strength and flexibility. Without both qualities, the pose is not possible.
 
This workshop will cover the four pillars required for establishing a handstand: strength drills, active mobility, technique and balance.
 
Entrances will include pike (legs together), straddle (legs wide), and other variations.
 
Prerequisites: Students must be able to kick up to handstand consistently and hold for 2-5 seconds without using a wall.
