Laine Rinehart Posted September 18, 2015 Share Posted September 18, 2015 Does anyone work on them here? I know this forum seems to be mostly devoted to developing the straight line which I am also working on but I am also interested in the variety of backbend handstands out there. I have fairly deep back flexibility I can catch my ankles and work them up my calves and straighten my legs in backbends and can do several chest stand variations but I need help when it comes to applying this flexibility while on my hands. I can comfortably rest my feet on top of my head and get them past my nose but at that point I tip over into a backbend. I'd really like to work on bringing the feet to the sides of my face and eventually into my arm pits but I simply don't feel the depth of my back flexibility while on my hands. While traveling several non traditional ashtanga teachers have adjusted me in handstand to do this but my teachers at home are more on the traditional side and won't work on this with me. I need to find someway of working on this on my own and any feed back would be appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
