How to do a Headstand!! This has to be my most favorite pose because it took a lot for me the first time I tried this— to completely erase the fear of falling. Try it! This will improve your upper body strength and balance.
Here’s how you do it!
Position A: get on your elbows and knees, fold your hands together, and place them on the ground in front of you, strong forearms.
Position B: firmly position the top of your head in front of your folded hands. Step up on your toes and inch forward bit by bit.
Position C: stay balanced on your forearms, slowly lift your right leg up.
Position D: lift your left leg up. Do not hunch your shoulders, and keep your forearms strong. Most of your weight will be at your forearms, not so much on your head. Balance and hold!
Try this everyday for 30 seconds to a minute.. If you don’t get it at first, keep trying steps A to C until you get to D 🙂
I hope the yoga inspired movements this week motivated you to go and practice it whether you are a beginner or an advanced yogi bear.
PS- just a few words of encouragement… you won’t always get the support you need from every single important person in your life, what’s important is knowing what you want, and going for it no matter what. People will be there to protect you and look out for what they believe is for your best interest. But only you know what’s inside you and only you know what’s best for you. Don’t get beat by outside influences. Stay true to what you believe in, firmly believe in it until you get it.
