Adho Mukha Vrkasana (Handstand)

Adho Mukha Vrkasana (Handstand)

 Benefits: This inversion stimulates blood flow to your head and strengthens your arms.  How to do it: Start in Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog Pose), with your fingertips an inch or two away from a wall.  Firm your shoulder blades. Bend your right leg in, keeping your left leg straight. Push through your left heel to kick up toward the wall. That may be as deep as you can go into the pose right now. If you can move into the full pose, engage your core and exhale as you kick up to the wall. Stay in the pose for 10 to 15 seconds.
