Different Headstands/Sirshasana in Yoga:
Said to be the king of ALL yoga postures/asanas. There are so many variations to experiment with and try. Start simple and work your way up.
Often people experience fear with practicing headstands, which can be anything, from not wanting to fall to loss of control, practice regularly to explore and challenge your fear, and amaze yourself by doing something you didn’t think you would be able to.
Once you get to grips with headstands (and in time you will), you’ll be happy you did. The list of health benefits seems to be endless.
