Giselle Mari transitioned to handstand practice from utthita hasta padangusthasana, extended hand-to-big toe pose.
From uttanasana, forward bend, cradle the hands and pick up a foot, coming up to standing with it.
Extend the foot. Forward bend toward the toes.
Let go of the foot but keep it extending forward. Remember how the core feels at this moment.
Swing the front leg back to dancers pose, and bring it down to the ball of the foot.
Kick up with the bent leg, keeping this knee to the chest. Eyes gaze slightly beyond the hands.
Jump up 5 times. When you can stay afloat for 5 breaths, come into handstand.
Come down to a lunge/hamstring stretch.
