I think teaching headstand to the class was hugely beneficial for me. I’m doing yoga teacher training this summer, and breaking down a pose that complicated is a hard thing to do. I think it set me up well to learn to break down postures like that in the future. I’ll have to do a lot of that this summer at training.

Headstand is hard to learn, but it’s most important to not get injured. Doing it wrong can lead to bad injuries and strains. Making sure you have the shoulder and core strength necessary is important first before attempting the pose. It also helps to use a wall or have someone assist you to do the full pose.

I really loved teaching and so far I’m learning how ready I am to be a certified teacher come August.
