HAND­STAND POSE (ADHO MUKHA VRKSASANA)

AugustMan (Malaysia) - - Folks Of Kin -

“I fell in love with this pose a er I got to know Ido Po al, who blew up train­ing the likes of Con­nor Mc­Gre­gor in the Ul­ti­mate Fight­ing Cham­pi­onship. You could say that it’s a very uni­ver­sal pose, as it res­onates with the ones in gym­nas­tics and move­ment yoga; it’s about how play­ful you can get with it, and the a itude that you en­gage with dur­ing the work­out. Ev­ery time you do it, it’s not go­ing to be pe ect. Ev­ery time it’s a new ex­pe­ri­ence, no ma er how many times you’ve done it.

I’ve done it for years, and it gives me a lot of in­for­ma­tion about where my body’s sit­u­a­tion stands. Is my body too tight? Is my fo­cus not there? Am I a bit lop­sided be­cause my align­ment’s off? It gives me a lot of feed­back about what my body is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing.”
