Bamboo Handstand Blocks-- Want to Learn Handstand or Improve Your Hand Balancing Practice? Most people think that handstand involves putting your hand flat on the floor and simply pushing down—but that’s not right! Check out photos of people doing handstands, and you’ll see that the more advanced students “grip” the floor using their hand like a claw. Your fingers form arches and your palms forms a dome, and you create a dynamic, muscle and bone support structure for your entire body to balance on.
The Bamboo Handstand Blocks by YOGABODY were designed for our professional yoga studios in Barcelona, so they are beautiful, durable, easy-to-clean, safe, and natural. Yoga students have used standard yoga blocks for years, but these blocks are completely different: they are smaller, stronger, non-slip, easy-to-clean, and designed specifically to build grip strength for inversions.
