Yoga into Handstand Workshop (Adho Mukha Vrkshasan)
Diane Busuttil is an expert at handstands. Her previous training as an acrobat in the circus combined with her life-long knowledge of movement and yoga create the perfect discipline for the yoga into handstand workshop. Diane encourages her students to strive for the same strength and balance that she so gracefully executes.
In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of a handstand ie: strength and stability. We acquire these attributes through technique, body awareness and the correct use of breathe in movement. The main physical areas of the body that need work are: upper back, shoulder, arms and wrists. Therefore our warm up will concentrate on all these areas.
Over the years Diane has integrated release-based movement techniques into the class which are a perfect conditioning tool to temper the body into the sensations of weight sharing with gravity, enabling a clear sense of flowing swing between the floor and space to create the perfect anatomically balanced handstand.
