Inversion Challenge, Day 4: Forearm Stand

Yoga teacher and former NFL football player Derrick “DJ” Townsel demonstrates how to move through Dolphin Pose into Pincha Mayurasana (Forearm Stand).

You’ve got the basics of inversion down, so it’s time to level up. In this video, we’ll practice kicking up—and using drishti (gaze, or focal point) and breath to move through Dolphin Pose into Forearm Stand.

This video is part of a seven-day inversion challenge hosted by yoga teacher and former NFL football player Derrick “DJ” Townsel. Find all the videos in this series here.
