MONTHLY THEME:
HANDSTAND

All cues are meant to be used when you're in full expression of the pose unless otherwise noted.

Week 1:

What you’ll learn:

  • Why you want to keep your hips level and belly hollow as you kick up into a handstand
  • How to spot for a handstand…not that we’re doing any spotting right now!

Pam’s notes:

  • Over the years, I’ve heard different cues for handstand. You know by now, different cues work for different bodies. Your intention in a pose helps to determine how you cue or what cues work best for you.
  • A big part of learning to handstand is REPETITION. Keep practicing and keep learning.

Week 3:

What you’ll learn:

  • Learn why rotating your pelvis is so helpful in handstands.
  • Also, understand why the cue to “squeeze the glutes” is more functional with the rotation of your pelvis.

Pam’s notes:

  • This is a quick read from Kino Macgregor about the few days she spent with the “handstand master”. Her learning inspired this week’s Favorite Cue.
  • We worked on this cue of “tucking the pelvis” a bit in my classes this week, and we had quite a few ‘ah-ha!’ moments.
