tangan berdiri

Doing the handstand is the most challenging yoga posture for me so far;- to balance your whole body on your hand and stay put while balancing your body on air Β from the strengths of your hands/arms. basically my arms is still very weak, and i have to use the wall to achieve this pose. My problem is that i’m afraid i will fall off, sideways or not, from the balancing. falling is always painful.. and that fear from falling is the hindrance. it’s hard to shake that feeling off and perhaps, that’s the reason why i cant achieve it yet. But i guess i just need more practice. and to shake off that fear ..

the handstand is imho, a few level above headstands and scorpion pose. if i can master the handstand.. a lot of other postures will be easy peasy.

strong arms is key!

kick up with wall support

variation 1

variation 2

all the best to me!

    good luck babe! anything with upper body workout is phwoar difficult for me. right now training slowly from weight training with machines to doing floor exercises (like push up on toes). I wish to be able to do handstand too!! not just about arm strength & core strength but balance too. i tried when younger, but my mom caught me and scolded me. said, “u wanna break ur neck ah!!” then never dared to again. T_____T
