This fourth installment of inversion yoga for handstands progression teaches you how to get into a freestanding handstand without using the wall.
Inversion Yoga: Handstand Tuck-Ups
Handstand tucks will help you find your balance and work your stabilizing muscles, without the help of a wall.
Start by placing your palms flat on the floor, about a foot in front of your toes. Bend your knees and push off the ground, bringing your hips up and your knees in a “tuck” position.
Practice these small tuck-up hops, and attempt to hold the top of the tuck and balance for longer & longer amounts of time.
If you get the tuck-up down, and have no problem holding the position at the top of each hop, then you may progress onto extending one or both legs up at the top of each tuck.
