One of the most iconic yoga poses, headstand has long been thought to provide countless benefits for its practitioners. In this class with Rachel, we mindfully explore how you can begin to practice this lovely pose. Practitioners with neck issues are advised to practice the preparatory pose (keep the head off the floor). Note: You will need a wall to do the practice.

This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 5 of Rachel's 7-Day Inversion Challenge.

I did it! My first real head stand! Thank you, Rachel😁

Rachel, Your instructions are very clear and paced. I will keep doing this series until I can do the inversions safely and correctly according to your teachings. Thank you!

The instruction in this challenge series and the practice and tips in strengthening the shoulders and body in preparation are paramount to helping everyone reach their goals with inversions. You did it again, Racel!

Headstand feels so much more achievable after doing this class. Love the core work at the beginning and Rachaels cues are always super clear and fun. Question- when working on headstand at the wall at the end should the back of my head nest in or touch the back of my hands and wrists at all or should I maintain space between my head and hands? Thank you!
