There's ALWAYS more to grow, and that's why we call yoga a practice. No matter where you are in this journey there is another step to be taken. Be thankful and content for where you are, but appreciate the things to come! As for asana, a common way to progress a movement or body position and make it stronger is to do that movement or position on an unstable surface. This challenges and improves your balance, proprioception, and strength. It's like standing on solid ground vs. standing on an exercise ball. It takes A LOT more effort. Here's a way to challenge your handstand. In the video below, you can see that I sway a little and need to adjust a lot to hold my handstand, but that's the point!
Handstand on Blocks
Give the blocks a good squeeze! I like to hook my fingers over the front of the blocks slightly to get a better grip. Be careful on this one though! You need to have a pretty stable handstand on solid ground first for this challenge. Try not to dump your weight into your wrists or you could injure them. Have fun!
