How to Kick Up To Handstand With A Bolster

May 02, 2013

Halfmoon - How to Kick Up To Handstand With A Bolster

Ask Toronto yoga teacher Donna Wilding what her favorite yoga pose is and she will answer with Handstand. For Donna Handstand, Adho Mukha Vrksasana, “offers new challenges and rediscovery every time it’s practiced“.

Kick Up To Handstand With A Bolster

Donna hosts various inversion and handstand workshops in Toronto and the GTA where she shares the tip that has helped so many newbies kick up. Place a Rectangular Bolster against the wall before you rise up in to handstand!

Many of the students in Donna’s workshops feel more comfortable and have more confidence with a bolster between them and the wall when practicing their handstand.

Gratitude is an attitude that can be cultivated not only around Thanksgiving for blessings in our lives, but during each moment of life — towards ourselves! Our brains are programmed to protect and to survive, and when we live a life out in the world it is nearly impossible to avoid feelings of self-judgment or unworthiness.
