*As an inversion exercise, it helps in improving blood circulation, especially to the upper body as it relieves the pressure off your legs and feet. It also helps manage one’s breathing.

*This inversion also helps boost mood as the extra flow of blood energises the mind.

*Handstands help in engaging the core, which means that with regular practise, the upper body strength will be developed in no time.

*Handstands are also essential for regulating the body’s metabolic rate as they stimulate the pituitary and thyroid glands.

Who do you think rocked this handstand challenge better?
