Several other celebrities showed us in the past how to do a handstand, from Sania Mirza to Ranbir Kapoor. This yoga pose is also known as Adho Mukha Vrksasana, an inverted vertical position, with the body carefully balanced on both hands.
How to do a handstand
If you are a beginner, you can try doing an assisted handstand against a wall with these steps:
* Stand straight facing a wall and place your hands a few inches away from it, shoulder-distance apart.
* Get into the Downward-facing Dog pose. Walk forward until your shoulders are stacked above your wrists.
* Now raise one heel to the ceiling and keep it straight. Rise to the ball of your standing foot.
* Press into your hands. Gently ease off the bottom foot, lifting your top heel towards the ceiling and bringing your bottom heel to meet it. Use the wall for support.
* Stack your joints and draw the shoulders up and away from your ears. Squeeze your inner thighs and calves.
Benefits of handstand
Handstand not just improves overall balance but works the core. It boosts circulation in the body and lymph flow. This posture also engages the shoulders, arms, core and back. Therefore, it strengthens the upper body. According to fitandme.com, it also stimulates the endocrine system, increases grip strength and reduces stress.
