YOGA TUTORIAL: BEGINNER HEADSTAND! 😱▶️ When I posted my Yoga Tip Tuesday of Headstand the other week, I felt that when I gave the modification of practicing headstand on the wall for beginners that it MAY be better to show you how to use the wall to build strength for headstand! Press PLAY! and read below! ❤️👇🏼
1️⃣ Make a cradle for the back of your head and place your head on the ground about 3 inches from the wall. Make sure you're on the top of your head not forehead! Elbows should about shoulder width apart.
2️⃣ Walk your feet forward and practice lifting your legs off the ground and get comfortable. If this is as far as you can make it, STOP here! This is a great exercise when your first start practicing inversions!
3️⃣ If comfortable try to lift both feet up and bring your knees into your chest. Carefully place your feet on the wall and walk your feet up. Again, this may be your stopping point and that’s OK! 🙏🏼🦄
4️⃣ When ready, take one foot off the wall and then the other! Lift up through your core, firm your thighs and BREATH. You did it! 🤗🎉
5️⃣ Ready to come down? This is the most important part. carefully place your feet back on the wall and come out just how you went in. Most injury occurs coming out of a pose so make sure to do a yummy COUNTER stretch. I chose child’s pose above!!
