Ash Bond is an Oxford graduate turned English teacher turned outdoor guide turned yoga teacher. They met in Gabby's handstand class one rainy Bristol evening where Gabby made Ash do push-ups for being late. Six months later, they were having coffee (Ash having not quite forgiven Gabby for the push-ups) and Gabby asked why handstands were so popular, especially in yoga. Their business HandstandYogi and their debut book The Handstanding Yogi evolved from this question. Gabrielle Parker is a professionally trained acrobat and handstand instructor.
