Hello Takashi,

thank you for posting your question.

The straddle handstand or keeping the legs in a split position are both a bit easier I would say. You can practice them to bring a bit of variety into your practice if you get too bored of only practicing a straight line.

It is good practice to learn a straight line handstand first, because it is the baseline reference point for the different types of alignment that the other shapes require.

How are you getting on with the programm so far?

Best,
Natalie
