Allison thank you so much for bringing this challenge to life. Your careful  and precise  instruction is clear  and not at all overwhelming. I am already cultivating a different view of handstand. I really appreciated the practice with the “wobble board.”  Feeling strong and grateful as I leave my mat. 🙏

That was super great Allison, many thanks. These sessions are teaching me a lot about what is going on in my body (by actually feeling it) when I kick up into handstand and I suspect all that will likely help keep me safe in this practice as I do it in future 💗🙏

Kate M So sweet of you! I'm glad you enjoyed the different approaches : )
Catherine A So glad to hear that! Yes, I love that..."by actually feeling" what you are doing and the effect it has on your body and mind versus "doing it" for the sake of doing. I do believe the more in tune we are with our body and who we are, the better we will be for it in any capacity and with any challenges we approach.
