Beginner’s Guide to Headstand

There are so many benefits to inversions and they are a lot of fun to do, but if you aren’t ready for them, you can potentially injure yourself or scare yourself out of trying again.

A strong core and strong upper body are necessary to keep you upside down in any inversion. Though you will gain both of these through an inversion practice, it is important to note that you need to take things slow to get there. The more you control your movements, the greater the strength you will develop.

Before you jump right into this guide to headstands, be sure to warm up the muscles that are crucial to support your body in a headstand through Sun Salutations, and/or core exercises/poses, downward facing dog, and stretching to loosen up your hamstrings.
