Yoga Tripod Pose

If you have ever attempted a handstand, headstand or any version of an upside-down balance pose, you know how much core strength these positions require.

Tripod, a pose that works as a transition into handstands, is no exception. The Tripod headstand pose lengthens the spine, eases lower back pressure and can even alleviate stress. If you are new to yoga or just beginning to practice more complicated positions, make sure you’re in the presence of an instructor or someone who can help spot you when working on the Tripod headstand pose.
