While waiting for my latest Zoom yoga session to start, I had a spontaneous thought, and decided to try and post every day on social media (links below) all sorts of different ways to do headstands.
Each post is a video, to show that they can be done, wobbles and all! A wobble is just the core connecting and waiting to stabilise, and they happen to everyone!
Firstly, the most important is to get your foundation right. Then, you need to let go of your fear, engage your muscles, and up you go.
Practice makes perfect so they say – I’m not achieving perfection but doing this light heartedly! If you’ve never done a headstand before, please seek guidance and use a wall to gain confidence first.
Some people think it’s just messing around, or having a play, but it’s all fun, and why shouldn’t I have fun?! Fun keeps us young, and you’re never too old to have fun – playtime is definitely not just for children, but we’re all young at heart.
Get creative, try new things. Take yourself out of your comfort zone and see what you can achieve and create!
So, headstands done differently. Any thoughts or suggestions? Ones I’ve tried so far are:
Day 1 Tripod headstand to crow to headstand
Day 2 Feetup trainer, headstand to tuck in to headstand
Day 3 My yoga wheel, plank to pike headstand to plank
…and lots more to come!
