Join our resident teacher, Becky Farbstein, for a virtual masterclass exploring different challenging yoga poses in more detail!
Handstands are arguably one of the more aspirational asanas for many contemporary yogis. This live-streamed masterclass is guided by the principle that handstands are a skill-based discipline, rather than strength or flexibility-based postures. Learn the skills that are essential for finding lightness and ease in your handstand practice, and move beyond repeatedly jumping up with abandon and hoping for a miracle.
No need to be able to balance in the middle of the room to join this class, but an open-mind and willingness to try new things are absolute prerequisites.
Props suggested: a wall.
A link to the live-streamed class will be emailed 10-minutes prior to the class start time with instructions to access the online studio on Zoom.
Becky's classes are both physically and intellectually challenging with a focus on building a steady, strong ujjayi breath. She loves it when people breathe deep, try new things, smile, and sweat profusely.
Becky took her first yoga class at a local gym more than ten years ago, shortly after moving from America to England to attend graduate school. For several years, she practiced Sivananda yoga to help balance the stresses of graduate school. The mental space yoga provides turned out to be the perfect counter-balance for her classic Type-A personality and her career in academia off the mat. With no background in dance, gymnastics, or martial arts, Becky found the physical demands of these styles of yoga both challenging and rewarding.
