In this short video, famous Ashtanga yoga teacher Kino MacGregor from Miami Life Center gives you the basics to perform quickly and safely Sirsasana without falling on the floor and… on your classmates. Right alignment, regular practice and patience are the keys.

By breaking down this movement into simple steps anyone can learn to balance on their head. Starting off with a solid foundation you transfer the weight of your body forward and allow the upward motion to happen. It took me a long time to figure out the balance when I was first starting, nearly eight month of falling over so please remember to be patient with yourself. Alexandra Santos is my model and she teaches a full schedule of Ashtanga Yoga classes at Miami Life Center.
