Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana)

Inversions can be not only difficult but also scary.  You are turning your
world upside down.  I can do a respectable shoulder stand by pushing off
the wall but I am nowhere near handstand and headstand.  First, I do need
to get my weight down.  Secondly, I need to work on my shoulder strength.
There are many poses that can be done as preparation and we do them in
our classes.

Below is a picture of my teacher, Susan, in a handstand.  I don't find this
pose as daunting as a headstand so this is one of my goals.
