Tips on chinstand!

This pose is about flexibility, strength and confidence. You need to be flexible to be able to put your weight on your arms and not your chin while standing in this position. Focus on stretching your back and opening up your chest and neck. You need strength to hold the pose. You need confidence to dare balancing on your chin!

1. Start by lifting one leg up and moving your weight to your arms.

2. Now slowly bend your arms and move towards the ground like a pushup, until your chin reaches the floor.

3. When you reach the floor, move your weight over to your arms at the same time as you kick up your other leg. If you can’t get up with a easy kick, do’nt force it. Instead use a wall to climb up with your legs to practice standing in this pose.

4. When your up with both legs, tighten your whole body to gain control in this pose.

Good luck yogis!
