Funky headstand variation. Surprisingly stable. Thanks to the amazing @kinoyoga. Her guidance: accessible if you can balance well in traditional head stand and straighten your arms in wheel. Of course, I tried it at the wall, as safety not support. I started in traditional and then lifted my hands. As always, with headstands, be mindful and smart. It’s your neck! So don’t just go kicking up all willy nilly. If you can’t lift up with control, develop more core strength for a while. And keep weight in those arms or, in this case, elbows. Really press them into earth. Draw shoulders away from ears. Don’t just rest on your head. Headstands need strong arms, strong shoulders, and strong abs. In my training, 5 minute dog holds and handstand work precedes headstands.
Do yoga. Today.
