How to do a headstand. This pose takes a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, it is so rewarding. Take your time in each step and practice daily!
one: get on your forearms and knees. tuck your toes under. interlock your hands behind your head. this is important- it is your support.
two: slowly walk your feet a little closer as your straighten your knees. shoulders need to be strong here. try not to sink in or slouch.
three: as you find balance in your shoulders and hands, start to slowly lift your feet off of the ground. try one foot at a time. play around at this step until you start to feel comfortable and find the balance. it’s okay to stop here.
four: if you feel sturdy at step 3, you can slowly bring your legs up. focus on finding balance before you bring your legs all the way up. focus on pushing your interlocked hands strongly into your mat.
five: lift your legs up. keep your focus on your forearms. you should be putting more weight on your arms than on your head. keep the balance and hold it!
keep practicing each step daily! don’t move on to the next step until you are fully confident and have balance. you can do it! trust your body and always remember to breathe.
peace and love,
