OVERCOMING THE FEAR OF BEING ON OUR HEADS

Again, I saw many who do Not have a headstand practice (some who have never even tried to do a headstand) stand on their heads today with much Courage.

“Overcoming the fear of being on our heads”.

Headstand is much like the Mountain Pose, just up-side-down.  The whole body is in alignment.  The part that is touching the mat is grounding, while the top part is relaxed.  

In Shirshasana (Supported Headstand), the forearms and elbows ground, while the feet relaxes.  In Tadasana (Mountain Pose), both feet ground while the shoulders and face relax. 

I hope you try it one of these days.  It’s freeing.  It’s the ultimate inversion.  The head is below the heart, which gives the heart it’s much needed rest, as Seventy percent of the blood that the heart pumps goes to the brain.
