TRIPOD HEADSTAND
.
By @roxanne_yoga

Some of you asked to do a tutorial on Tripod Headstand when I posted the one on Supported Headstand.
Personally I found this a lot more difficult than Supported Headstand when I was learning it because I lacked a lot of upper body strength. That caused a lot of compression in my neck because I didn't have enough strength in my triceps to hug my arms in, and shoulder strength to draw my shoulders back away from my ears. Also, there is more weight on the head in this variation.

Be sure that your hands and head form a triangle on the ground- you should be able to see your fingers from where you are. Do your best to start with the elbows hugging in, and your shoulders away from your ears, and keep the awareness of your alignment as you progress getting your legs up.

Remember, getting up is one thing, getting up with proper alignment is another, if not we might end up hurting ourselves. The neck is the most vulnerable in this pose, so... one last reminder- keep doing these two things:
1) elbows in
2) shoulders back / broaden shoulder blades
And we can continue to practice injury-free :)
