It also provides a wonderful stretch for the hamstrings, quadriceps, psoas, and shoulders, and inspires you to radiate from the inside out. Appropriate for intermediate students.
8. How To Build Strength Beyond a Handstand
Being able to do handstand push-ups is one way to surely move past a static handstand. Please note that this is not traditional and certainly would not be done in a traditional yoga shala. I would not do this during my daily practice, but instead in the afternoons to have fun and build strength. If you want to try this you can use a wall for balance or ask a friend to spot you. Just be sure that you already have a really good handstand before you try.
