Start Doing Handstands

Many of you probably read the title of this post and thought that standing on your hands is not possible.

That is completely false! Even if you aren’t a seasoned gymnast, acrobat, or yogi, you can start working towards handstands. Flipping your body upside-down is actually wonderful for your body.

Doing a handstand increases circulation to the upper body and relieves the constant pressure placed on your lower half.  It feels great- and you’ll always feel lighter, refreshed and rejuvenated after a little handstand practice session.

Some additional benefits of handstands:

  • Increased upper body, core strength and stability
  • Great for strengthening and stabilizing fingers, hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and your entire core
  • Increased body and limb spatial awareness
  • Can even boost your mood and help to regulate your metabolism

Try doing a little handstand practice EACH day this week!
