  • Slowly lean forward and lower your head to the floor and bring your feet through your arms. Point your toes.

I totally agree. Lowering slowly is key.

Lowering your head to the ground is the most challenging part of the entire pose because one wrong move and yes you will smash your face but more importantly the pose will just dissolve. Good thing it's just Yoga and laughing at yourself is awesome
