3. The different ways of entering the pose

Hello beautiful yogi,

Now that we have covered the basic alignment in headstand, let's look at different way to enter the pose. Because honestly all the alignment cues in the world are of no use if you don't know how to get into the pose in the first place am I right? ;)

I'll be sharing the 5 common ways to enter this pose and which ones I like or dislike as a teacher. None of these are bad or wrong, but some of these require a certain amount of control and body awareness that most beginner yogis won't have just yet.

Here are the 5 different ways:

  • jumping

  • swinging

  • half-press (the method I'll be teaching in this course)

  • knee tuck

  • full press

If you have any more questions than do not hesitate to leave them down in the comment section. ❤️

Much love,
