Headstand Movement – Swimming

Continuing to work with movement in headstand. This breaststroke/frog swimming motion tests the core as you focus on maintaining a steady body as you increase the range of movement in your legs.

Filmed in Godmanchester, July 2018.


Headstand Movement – Cycling

Beginning to work with movement in headstand. Cycling in the air is always a good one to begin with as it is effectively a continual repeated switching of stag legs. Note the different foot positions – pointed, flexed, and alternating – for added coordination focus.

Lotus Headstand

Haven’t been able to get my legs independently into lotus for over a year but finally made headway with this half-lotus entry into headstand and making the final – most difficult – move into full lotus without assistance.

Gains filmed in July 2017.


Headstand Flow

With bound hands, this flow incorporated a pike press to headstand, into hollowback/backbend, tuck, alternating legs, scorpion headstand and controlled tuck back down.


Ear Pressure Pose Tutorial

Please note I am speaking from my experience. Some people asked how to get into this pose thus I tried to explain as simply as I could and demonstrated in video form.

As always, safety first, especially with any poses that put a lot of strain on the neck, such as this one. Any pain or difficulty, please come out of the pose and seek professional advice.


One Armed Handstand (Supported)

One armed handstand work against a wall. Needs a lot of work still to strengthen further, and due to osteopenia and osteoarthritis on the right I’ll never get the same on the opposite side, but this is one move I’m loving working on!
