How to Jump Forward

Jump forward from downward dog to handstand in Ashtanga Yoga with Kino MacGregor. Learning handstands and arm balances is something that can be really challenging if it’s not naturally easy for you. It certainly was an uphill struggle for me. One way that I found it easy to practice learning how to float in handstand or half-handstand position is in the sun salutation. When you jump forward from downward dog to standing or uttanasana then you have a chance to catch a little air and find the balance. Since this is done every day it is the perfect place to really build inner strength. Remember to jump your hips over the solid foundation of the arms and think forward to get the floaty sensation. Inhale as you jump forward, have faith and fun!
