sirsasana is a very important yoga asana in the list of all asanas, and even if I say that this asana is the king of all asana so it is not going to wrong because it does not prevent the problems it also cures the problems and this asana has its “amazing benefits” physically and mentally. As we talked about earlier this asana has its amazing benefits, but while performing this asana we need to take some“Precautions” for this asana.

So, in this article, we are going to tell you how to perform sirsasana and how can a beginner perform this asana easily.


  • Try to do at least 2-3 asana before performing this asana, like Bhujangasana, Kaplbhaanti and Bhastrika pranayam and many others because this will make active your brain and body.
  • Please do not perform this asana after having a meal and try to do this asana at least after 2-3 hours of your meal.

Because in this asana we hold a position and keep our head towards the earth which may increase the chances of headache and vomiting.

  • Beginners should always perform this asana under the guidance of people or with the support of a wall and something, that will increase their confidence while performing the asana.

8 amazing benefits of sirsasana (Headstand )


There are many steps of performing this asana as described below.


  • You should first sit on a soft mat or a padded pad in “Vajrasana“, [why needs soft mat] because in this asana our head is on the surface of the ground, then it may have to face pain, then please keep something under the head so that the head is relaxed, After that, you tilt your back slightly forward and bring your hands forward, now you have both hands together to make the fingers well connected.


  • After that, you place your head well in between the soles of your hands. Then you raise upward the lower part of your back and your hips like a “Downward Dog pose” hold this position for at least 15-20 seconds.


  • Then, with your toes, stay in this position for a while. After that, you try to raise both your legs and you lift your legs slightly upwards so that your feet and stomach can make an angle of 90 degrees and be in this position for seconds. As shown below in the image.


  • Then you try to raise your legs slowly and upwards as shown in the video when you have complete confidence, then after that, you try to pull the fingers of your feet upwards, but take special care at this time. You do not drag your feet upwards, you just try to pull your fingers upwards. If you do this, then you can keep your balance for a long time.
Key Mistakes:-
  • Many beginners do not use a soft mat under their head and they directly perform on the earth surface and on the floor which letdowns their confidence so beginners should always use a mat while performing.
  • Many people think that they will be able to do this asana in a single day, but this is not the case, it may take a few weeks or months to complete this asana, but with regular practice one day you will definitely able to do this asana.
