Asana Clinic: Handstand with Cassandra Ferland

November 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Come for two hours of guided play as we work to approach and unpack one of the most elusive of the asana- handstand!

In this workshop, Cassandra will lead you through a short sequence to prepare and inform the body for handstand play. You will learn conditioning techniques that you can integrate into your daily practice to attain the strength and flexibility required of this pose. Since the fear of falling often holds a practitioner back from truly committing to moving into handstand, you will have the chance to practice the skills and awareness necessary for falling safely, and even gracefully, out of the pose.

Expect to work on and refine kicking up, using the wall or a partner in a variety of ways to gain more alignment awareness, learning to fall gracefully, and taking your handstand away from the wall. If you can already balance on your hands, this workshop will help you reinforce correct muscle memory and move towards new goals such as pressing into handstand and transitions from handstand.

All levels are welcome to come play. Don’t miss this chance to spend two hours tapping into your own power, connecting you to your inner strength and courage, and your innate ability to be joyful in the midst of challenge!
