Upward rotation of the scapula, part 2: handstand

Join Jenn in a practice designed to to help us better embody the action of upward rotation of the scapula (shoulder blade) - an important key ingredient in taking our arms overhead easefully and spaciously. This practice is themed around inversions, with a peak pose of handstand (adho mukha vrksasana). (Coming into full handstand is just optional, so please feel encouraged to try this class, even if you don't feel comfortable in handstand!)

This practice utilizes either one yoga strap or a dowel (a solid cylindrical rod, usually made from wood).
