I love headstands! I was actually able to come up in to one on my very first attempt in yoga class over 18 years ago. It may be in my genes, I remember my mom doing a headstand in the middle of our dining room one Thanksgiving; or it could be I was a headstanding yogi in a past life. (That being said, it’s taken me years to get in to splits and there are many other postures that just don’t come naturally at all.)
I know for many students, though, there’s a big fear of going upside down; and headstands freak them out. I want to share a really great way to prepare the body for headstand practice so anyone can feel comfortable coming in to this posture safely and with confidence.
