Handstand (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Set of drawings of women performing the Handstand

Handstand is an advanced inversion and arm balance. Some preparatory postures for Handstand include Downward Facing Dog, Crane Pose, Plank Pose, Hero, and Forward Fold. While Handstand takes strength it also takes a lot of focus. Follow up postures to Headstand include a supported headstand and the Feathered Peacock Pose.

Drawings of people performing the Handstand represented in outline silhouettes

Headstand is basically just taking Mountain Pose and flipping it upside down. Try using a wall for balance or a partner to help with getting into this posture when first attempting a Headstand. Some Yogi’s start from a standing position and some from a posture such as Downward Facing Dog.
