You're in a headstand!

Maybe you're not, but remember it takes practice and patience - so keep at it!

But if you are, congratulations(!) and a few things to remember:

Breathe.

Push down through your arms to create space between shoulders and ears. This will also take tension off your neck.

Aim to be inverted for a minimum of 15-30 seconds, and as your strength and confidence increases, so will the amount of time you will able to stay upside down.

Practice coming out of the headstand with control (don't just fall over or plop down), coming down is just as important as going up.
