hey this class is going to be about headstand this class is going to be about headstand it’s a headstand tutorial First of all there is a reason why we practice inversions at the end of our practice First of all there is a reason why we practice inversions at the end of our practice because we already warm up our body Work our core so we have all those activations in our body on the fire is going on so I strongly recommend you to do one of those classes first if this is your first practice of the day Take your time go do one of those classes it’s going to make this tutorial more effective and most importantly safer so please go do one of those and come back so let’s go upside down crazy hair day [Music] okay welcome let’s begin let’s start with our hands what should we do with our hands during headstand I want to start with this because I think it’s a really important point they’re different hand variations out there some people prefer to do this crossing their fingers and doing a fist together with both of their hands some people do this thing and some do this, which one I prefer? this one, and let me explain why of course during my journey of learning headstand I’ve tried all of those variations I found this one works for me best, and why? because… when I do this and if you’re at the beginning of your headstand journey It is a big possibility that you’re going fall down so when I am like this and when I fall down my body weight goes on of my hands which makes this pressure in between my finger knuckles my body weight goes on of my hands which makes this pressure in between my finger knuckles and it hurts, it really hurts and this shape is not easy to get out of so I don’t prefer this but you can try all of the variations and see which one works for you the best so the first one is this the second one I think this is better compared to the other one because you still do this crossing fingertips and still it’s going to hurt if you fall down but you use these little fingers as a support Which seems little but actually it makes a difference so you can try instead of doing all of your fingers like this You can use this on the mat And this, also as a support to your head it’s going to be something like this so these little fingers here are going to make a little bit more support for you so these little fingers here are going to make a little bit more support for you my favorite is this, why? because I have the support that I have here And this is so easy to get out of even when I am falling down I can make this To get out of this shape And ending up with a minor hurting feeling so you can try all of them and see which one works for you the best I’m going to show you all these here but of course you can do this tutorial against a wall so you can feel that safety, that support Knowing that it’s there when you need it at first you can practice with a wall But a while later I think you should come here But a while later I think you should come here Without a wall It makes a difference mentally something removes okay We did it our “hand variations” talk The best way to figure out is trying So try and experience all of them and see which one is best for you which one works for you the best Now let’s come on our mat and start headstanding I’m going to use these hands as I said your elbows should be shoulder-distance apart so when you do that you should be able to touch your opposite elbows so when you do that you should be able to touch your opposite elbows Figure it out here arrange your length and then place your hands on the mat, then your head tuck your toes and lift your butt up We are never going to jump guys I never suggest you to jump walk with your feet as close as possible and from here do this little movement send your hips over your shoulders and return, lift your heels your hips over your shoulders and turn back Lift your heels Shift your hips and back again lift, now here bend your right knee and really pull your knee towards your chest feel that fire, that activation in your belly hold it here point your right toes and you’re trying to reach your right heel to your right hip to your butt release and

little rest here, just breathe catch your breath As I said we are never going to jump in this tutorial I never recommend you to jump into inversions Because actually it make more difficult because you add this momentum When even you can’t balance the position so you’re doing something more difficult first you need to deal with that momentum, that speed then you need to find your balance and maybe you hold come on, no, we are not going to jump so this time take your towel or blanket A piece of cloth [Music] put it on your thighs, make it close to your belly we are going to hold the blanket
