This is considered an inversion because your body is upside down! Inversions such as headstand, forearm stand, and handstand can make yoga practice very fun!
Begin with your back on the ground, your knees slightly bent, and your feet in the air. Press your hands flat on the ground, and use them to roll yourself backward on your upper back. As you do this, bring the hands to your lower back, just above your hips, to keep yourself upright.
Slowly extend your legs toward the ceiling.
Beginner Modification: If you’re having difficulty staying up, place your hands on your hips to help support your weight better.
