Handstand Tutorial - L-Shape Exercise Using a Wall

About This Class

Get stronger in handstands by practicing the L-shape at the wall!

Hey yogis, a lot of you have been asking me for tutorials on handstands. While I can do them, they are still very challenging for me and it took me years to build up enough strength to get into them! I'm still not at all an expert. There are lots of different ways of building upper body strength and practicing handstands. In this 5 minute yoga tutorial, I'll show you how to do an L-Shape at the wall to get into handstand.

If you want to get good at this inversion, practicing the L-shape every day is an amazing way to get you there. There are lots of other exercises you can do that will help you master your handstands. If you'd like to know what those are, leave me a comment below and I'd be happy to film it for you.

Enjoy this 5 minute drill and get ready to work on your shoulders, core and arms.

Yoga With Kassandra

Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.


I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive


Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.
