Sirsasana I (Headstand) Tutorial

In this alignment-focused tutorial, learn how to practice sirsasana I (headstand) at a wall in order to support optimal alignment, safety, and stability. Take this classic pose in stages, first kicking up into it one leg at a time and then coming into it by lifting both legs simultaneously.

Please note that in Iyengar yoga sirsasana is taught only when a student can practice sarvangasana (shoulderstand) with ease and stability.
