Body position should be straight, head neutral. Look at your hands from underneath your eyebrows. Push up from the floor so you extend in your shoulders. Keep your stomach and chest in and your butt and legs tight (squeezed) to maintain a straight body position.

Only your hands are keeping you in a handstand position (keeping your balance). If falling over – apply pressure to the floor with your fingers. If falling under – loosen your finger pressure to the floor. Maintain a tight body position.

Make sure your hands are facing straight ahead, fingers spread apart, and arms straight. Keep your arms about shoulder-width apart.
