Inversion Prep with Angela and Steph

by Angela Clark and Steph Creaturo

Before Angela went on maternity leave, we were chatting about inversions and how to best prep for them.

“At my first teacher training,” Angela said, “we worked all the actions needed for strong inversions. Without ever doing any actual inversions. So when I went up into headstand at the end of the training, I went right up with a fair amount of ease.”

I then asked Angela to lead me through a short, at-home, anyone-can-do-this practice  to build those key actions necessary for strong inversions. No matter where you are with your inversion practice – whether you’re a seasoned headstander or you’re just starting to flirt with L-shaped handstand – you can work these actions in these tried and true poses. Perfect for bringing stability, grace. and ease from your right-side-up to your upside-down.

We’d love to hear what you think in the comments!
