Yoga headstands, known as Sirshasana, are different than the standard gymnastic headstand. Instead of resting your palms flat on the ground you interlock your fingers and place them behind your head.
The headstand is a great stunt. Very much underrated. Here is a more difficult variation of the headstand. In fact this would be an excellent exercise to move you forward to holding headstand with no hands at all.
I would recommend you start off this move against a wall as your base of support is quite a bit smaller than the regular headstand.
Kicking up can be tricky too. Instead of kicking up you may want to raise your legs from the floor at the same time. Good ab move too.
This is just one clip from the Handstand Quick-start Guide. I’ll be putting more video up as development continues.
As this is the first informative video, please let me know what you think.
Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,
Do you have any tips for pure headstand? That is supporting your whole body with the head alone? Please google Dharma Mittra to see what a pure headstand looks like 🙂
