To do Supported Head Stand, kneel on the ground and put the forearms to the mat with the fingers intertwined. Next, place the top of the head on the mat, tucked into the hands, and lift the hips. Here is where it gets tricky, lift the legs so that the feet and ankles are lifted completely upright, toes pointed to the air. Try using a wall or a partner to help with getting into the posture.
