Headstand (Sirsasana) is a very powerful pose. The only thing required to learn is a little patience and a willingness to take it step by step. Here’s how to get into the yoga headstand pose in three steps.This Headstand video tutorial will teach you the proper alignment and technique to help you safely move into Headstand.Often called the king of the asanas, Headstand is an excellent inversion to add to your practice. Learn why headstands are so amazing, then learn the proper method to safely move into two different headstand variations.


  • From a kneeling position, clasp your elbows and place your forearms on the floor. This is the correct width for your arms, don’t let them go wider.
  • Interlace your fingers and then open your hands up. Your interlaced fingers will “cup” the back of your head in a moment.
  • Place your head on the floor. You want your head to teach the ground right about at your hairline (it’s more forward than you would think) with your hands now cupping the back of your head.
  • With your feet together, go into Downward-Facing Dog with your head on the floor.
  • Keep your head and arms as they are, and slowly walk your feet closer to your elbows.
  • When you have walked in as close as you can go with straight legs, stop.
  • One leg is bent into your chest, the other leg stays straight and strong.
  • Hold here, breathe, and then switch back and forth slowly and with control.
  • try bending both knees to your chest at the same time and just stay there, both knees bent to chest in a half headstand.
  • No jumping, bouncing, or legs flying in the air—ever. You might stay here in half-headstand for weeks. That’s just fine.
  • If and when you feel comfortable, slowly lift your legs into the air and find your balance. If you’re ready, the balance will come very easily. If not, go back a step.
  • To come down, bend the knees and reverse the steps.

No matter what you might have heard, any student, any age, any weight, any ability can learn the headstand. It’s just a matter of practice and patience—and proper setup

Benefits  :

  • Neck / Shoulder / Upper Back Healing. Headstand develops functional strength and stability in the neck, shoulders and upper back.
  • It can be particularly helpful in healing rotator cuff injuries.
  • Circulation / Blood Pressure Swap. When you’re upside down, it changes the blood pressure and circulation patterns very temporarily and stimulates circulation and lymph drainage
