7 STANDING KNEE-TO-CHEST VARIATION
This pose will help you balance in Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand), because it doesn’t allow a bend in your lower back or external rotation in your hips (root causes of imbalance). Start in Tadasana (Mountain Pose). Shift your weight to your left leg. Draw your right knee toward your chest, placing a block between your upper thigh and rib cage. Clasp your hands around the front of your right shin to find balance and length in your spine. Then release your hands up alongside your ears. Hold for 10 counts, then repeat each side 3–5 times.
