Body Lift Headstander

HeadStander in Use Body Lift Headstander
Headstander As Stool

Anyone who desires to receive the many benefits of practicing headstand but who feels afraid or not able to manage it on their own will love this prop. Experienced practitioners will delight in the ease of maintaining this relaxed version of a favorite pose. When using the headstander your shoulders rest on a thick cushion, keeping your head off the floor while gently stretching the neck. It is typically used next to a wall to help with balance and make it possible for you to release your arms and completely relax. However, experienced practitioners who are using it due to neck strain or injury may also move it away from the wall, doing all their favorite leg variations and twists, since the headstander is sturdy and well balanced and has room for your hands.

Here are some of the many headstand variations you can do on the Bodylift Headstander once you get the hang of it.
headstander supported Plank headstander supported plank core strength Headstander downdog
This is a short vinyasa sequence you can do using the Headstander as a low bench to modify poses to make them easier. Here you see plank, a core strengthening variation on plank and a leg up variation of down dog. On days when the full postures seem like too much of a push, or if you are working up to doing the full postures using the Headstander as a support works well. To see many more variations using the Headstander see the posting on our Facebook page. Special thanks to Shawn Brow of South Perry Yoga in Spokane, WA for her fine work on the Headstander.

The frame is made of steel and there is a T-shaped insert that conveniently turns the Headstander into a 13" tall stool. The padded bench is wonderful for aerial side lying poses and supported back bends. To see some examples try this blog entry entitled Body Lift Headstander a Cure for Back Pain.

 

"I love to do headstands, and there are a lot of benefits for yogis who are safe to practice them. I really appreciate my headstander, because I can stay up longer without any compression in my neck area. The feeling of having the neck so free and just hanging loose is great!!  The stool is extremely sturdy and easy to put together!  The padding is very soft and my shoulders are super comfortable the whole time I am up.  I teach yoga in my home studio, offering students small classes with lots of personal attention. I offer the headstander in my classes to my students who want to try inversions in a safe, supervised setting. Now these students are ordering their own for home!!"
