In this video I offer two useful modifications and provide instructions for working in the posture without doing a modification. The first modification is for if in the beginning stages you are having trouble lifting your feet off the ground. Try placing your hands on two blocks that are placed behind you. At first the extra elevation might scare you but it can also give you a thrill as you get the feeling of your feet and legs lifting up and clearing the ground. Try the second variation if you are afraid of falling on your head when going forward. Place a block in front of you, work to bend forward with control and place your head on the block. When working without modification remember that your arms are your foundation, wrap your legs snugly around your arms, squeeze the arms with the legs, keep your weight centered directly over your arms as much as possible when you bend forward. Think heavy arms, light head instead of heavy head, light arms. To help the weight remain centered over the hands, keep the hips down and back. As you stay in the posture suck the feet and legs up, away from the ground, press the hands evenly down.
