Tripod Headstand is a fairly easy inversion. Tripod has the same Iyengar’s difficulty rating as Salamba Sirsasana A (regular headstand). Most yogis find tripod slightly harder than regular headstand, although I’ve had way easier to learn tripod.

Tripod headstand Sanskrit is Mukta Hasta Sirsasana A, and is one of three types of headstands in the Mukta Hasta Sirsasana series. The other two, Mukta Hasta Sirsasana B (free hands headstand) and C (iron cross headstand) are significantly harder.

Tripod offers great stability, especially for pike and other leg variations when one or both legs are in front of you.

A challenging variation is headstand lotus.
