Sit to Head Down Front Flip

  • Bring your torso down slowly
  • Look through your legs
  • Keep your arms wide for stability
  • Then allow your legs to unfurl into Head-down
  • Squeeze your seat


  • Sweep your arms in front of your torso on the finish
  • Check your hips, knees and shoulders are vertically aligned as you settle into Head-down Shelf
