This second installment in the series has us continuing to work on our upper body and core strength, practicing arm balances, and stretching our hips, hamstrings, and shoulders. We are increasing the challenge each week as we move closer to being able to do headstands and handstands.
This super fun routine takes under 30 minutes to complete, and really improves your strength and flexibility. I had so much fun with this one, try it with me now!
These are the essentials for working out with me. For this workout I don't use any props, but usually I use 2 yoga blocks for supported corpse pose at the end. But you can manage just fine without them if you don't have them. You can even use a rolled up towel or firm pillow in place of the yoga block for certain exercises.

NOTE: It is important to practice arm balances several times a week, if not every day, between each new Journey to Handstands routine to really see fast improvement in your upper body strength and flexibility. You don't have to spend a lot of time, even less than 20 minutes is great, but doing a little bit most days goes a long way to improving in these poses.
