Do the Headstand with the wall
In this #StayOhm clip, Wendy is guiding on how to get up to a headstand with the help of the wall.
There are many things to take note of when you're trying to get up into a headstand, that it may sometimes feel a little overwhelming. The 3 most important things which you may wish to be aware of are:
- A strong base formed with your forearms and head. The base should resemble a triangle with the 3 key points being your two elbows and your head. Do not place the elbows too wide or too narrow. They should be about shoulder-width apart.
- Always ensure that your shoulders are away from your ears. Push with your forearms on the mat to lift your shoulders up.
- Fully engage your core by squeezing your belly which will help to make your body feel lighter as you are going up.
