    Agree, Raja is right on. The hairline is placed on the floor – if hairline is receeding ; ) well look at your ID photo from years back or at an older photo of yourself where you were younger; ) and you’ll see it.
    I was shown this by a yogi in Beneares who was a medical doctor and he was very anal about not having the soft spot touching the ground in headstand.

    If there is one …
    If there is one really dangerous way to do the headstand, it is the one shown above.

    At 1:16 the weight rests on the anterior fontanelle as it should, right? Nope, wrong. This is no tiny detail, and it must always be told when demonstrating shirshasana. Although the hemispheres are sutured after the first 2 years of life that is the soft spot (4 finger widths above hair line.) It can be cracked even with a mantra as Tibetan p’howa techniques easily demonstrate.

  6. RajaBegun says:

    Your hands are …
    Your hands are braced at the posterior fontanelle, which also leads to wrong pose. The line where the hair ends is where the head rests in the headstand correctly. This is no minor detail, considering that poses in yoga are meant to be maintained for long periods of time, and that those who are persevering do them daily. Please do not teach this to others and expose them to dangers if you have not learnt yoga from a competent teacher. It is not only wrong, but it is also unethical and dangerous.
