Lotus in Headstand (Urdhva Padmasana)

Headstands offer many health benefits. They may help to: •calm the mind •alleviate stress and depression •activate the pituitary and pineal glands •stimulate the lymphatic system •strengthen the upper body, spine, and core •enhance lung capacity •stimulate and strengthen abdominal organs •boost digestion Headstand is not for everyone, due to the complex nature of the pose. The following people should not practice Shirshasana: •Children under the age of 7 years old, as their skull can still be soft and is prone to injuries •Pregnant women, because there is a high risk of falling out of the pose •People with Glaucoma, because it can increase the pressure in the eyes •People who suffer from acute or heavy migraines •People with shoulder or neck issues need to be fully recovered before attempting Headstand •People with hypertension, because it can aggravate the disorder •People with serious heart problems •People with osteoporosis
