Soft Exit from Hand Stand

What makes this exit soft is the tucking of the knees toward the abdomen as the arms begin to bend and then shoot the feet back from there to land softly at the bottom of the push-up / chaturanga dandasana. Do not kick down into the floor which might injure the feet! The landing should be soft and quiet like a ninja.

Some prerequisites for this exit / transition = Having a strong Lolasana as well as a soft exit from straight arm Bakasana and Sirsasana.

For more subtle details and/or trouble shooting ask Jason in class.
