Headstand tutorial wearing @Ilu_fitwear and using the @jadeyogamats olive travel yoga mat 💕

1, 2 & 3) Start by setting up your arms and hands. Open your elbows shoulder width distance and interlace your fingers. Keep the base of your palms touching. You will place the your head down so that the back of your head eventually touches the base of your palms. So when you start, the point of contact should be slightly in front of your top of head position so when you walk in, the rolling back action will bring the correct spot (top of head) to the ground and back of head is against your base of palms.
4) Push your arms back into the shoulders and press your shoulders away from the ears. Then walk in as much as you can.
5) Bring one knee into chest and actively (read: strongly) squeeze your shin into your chest. That action will help bring your hips back and eventually beyond your shoulders. Once your hips are beyond your shoulders, your bottom leg will feel light. Float it off the ground. Press down into your elbow. Keep a strong, stable foundation in your shoulders.
6) Maintain the shape of your legs and continue to lift until your extended leg is straight and stacked on top of hips. Straighten both legs and hug into midline. Keep your belly engaged. When you are in a headstand, you want to keep your head in a neutral position - this will protect your neck.
7 & 8) Play with your balance by moving the legs around or into Urdhva Dandasana.

Common problems: * Elbows coming apart - this happens when your shoulders are not strong enough. In downdog, practice holding a block in between your forearms and lower elbows to floor at the same time. * Rounded back - if this happens, you will need to set up blocks behind your upper back to support you.

#urdvhaDandasana #PosesOfThePast I tried to make this pose happen for so long that when it finally happened, it was pure freedom and lightness. This is why I practice inversions. @silver_cloudss @werkshop

Headstand is considered the #kingofasanas. Benefits include:
• increased blood supply to the brain, which helps to think more clearly
• regulates the pituitary and pineal glands, which stimulate growth, health and vitality
• alleviates sleep disorders
• helps lung problems
• relieves anxiety
• increases hemoglobin levels in the blood
• builds shoulder, neck and core strength
