Yes, getting into headstand can be intimidating. You’re not alone if you’re looking around your yoga class thinking, How will I ever do that? Invert your perception with this exclusive three block headstand sequence from Jennifer Elliott, designed for both beginner and seasoned yogis, to safely support your neck and back as you build your foundation for a rock star headstand:
I tend to avoid headstands anymore because of neck issues I have resulting from a car accident. As a teacher, I’ve found that most people have trouble setting up the foundation of headstand properly, and put themselves at risk of injury. For those reasons I love this version with 3 blocks and the wall. Personally, I can get into headstand without aggravating my neck, and as a teacher I feel confident that I’m setting up my students for a successful inversion.
I hope you can join me for the third annual Santa Fe Yoga Festival next weekend August 26-28th, 2016. If you haven’t already bought your tickets, this is the time to do it. I’ll be teaching Saturday and Sunday, with at least one class accompanied by the amazing DJ’s Mental Physix. I hope to see you there!
