Mukta Hasta Sirsasana B

Sanskrit
Mukta Hasta Sirsasana B
English
Free Hands Headstand

Mukta Hasta Sirsasana B is free hands headstand with extended arms. A common misconception is that Mukta Hasta Sirsasana specifically means headstand with extended arms pointing forward. Mukta Hasta Sirsasana is a class of headstands, where A is the ordinary tripod headstand and C is with arms out, also known as iron cross headstand.

The best way to learn Mukta Hasta Sirsasana B is toe tap practice, and you should be stable in tripod and classic headstand before practicing this. You will very likely make this in pike before you get your legs vertical.

In general, leg variations that are easy in tripod headstand will work here too, such as pike and tuck. Leg variations which are easier to do in classic headstand than tripod such as scorpion are extremely hard here.

Aparigraha Yama

The Aparigraha Yama is about non-coveting, non-greed and self-reliance. For me, it means letting go the delusion that you need to be super rich to live a great life. I don’t need that exclusively located apartment/office. Upcycling is great for having unique designs. Don’t sacrifice health for wealth, it’s not worth it. Greed is when you put wealth before health. When you work so much for potential future revenues that you stop caring about loved ones, that you don’t have time for fitness and recovery, that you become an asexual virgin. Self-reliance is about letting go of controlling others. Your life is your choice, and how others live is their business. It is also about preparedness. Do you have enough savings to make a few months without income? Are you mentally strong enough to make a 72 hour digital detox? Can you repair your devices if they broke? Do you have a week worth of food if the unthinkable happens?
