    Inversions are very scary, and should be approached with caution and always with a skilled guide. There are many contradictions when it comes to inversion poses, so be very aware of them. For anyone saying they can't reach this level of yoga, I wouldn't give up due to the difficulty of it -- try and try again! Practice your preparatory poses and trust me, you will get there, and the feeling of achievement is very rewarding. I was on cloud 9 when I finally got up! Now, if it's another reason that headstands are not available to you then that's a totally different thing, work with variations -- the downward dog is a good enough inversion. Now, for those who just "can't' do this, you won't with that mindset. I did my first full headstand at the age of 40, and I have advanced to be able to do all except for transitioning like she did to the scorpion, that just scares me, and I honestly see lots of injury to the neck when she returns to headstand-- just my opinion. She obviously has a ton of skill and strength but showing this in a beginner level course is dangerous, and there will be people who may try it and injury their neck, yikes! Good luck all!

    A safety queue she didn't give for Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand), and trust me -- you will want to make your class very aware of this is NEVER turning your head while in full pose. The neck is in a vulnerable place, and students will want to look at you (the instructor) or someone else in the class. I always remind them not to turn their heads, and I show the pose before they attempt it on their own.

    Where can I ask for some help with my headstand?

    “Eat to live, don’t live to eat” – that’s the yogic attitude towards nutrition. The yoga practitioner chooses food products that have the most positive effectson the body and mind, and the fewest negative effectson the environment and on other creatures.
