Handstand - Adho Mukha Vrksasana

"Imagine a tree with enormous limbs and branches. Now imagine you could see beneath the ground to the root structure that mirrors the web of branches aboveground. Adho Mukha Vrksasana means upside-down tree pose in Sanskrit, and is more commonly known as handstand pose. When you practice this pose, your hands create your foundation like roots of a tree, supporting your body as it reaches towards the sky. This yoga pose reminds us that we can always find ways in which to root down and balance ourselves no matter how precarious the circumstances." - Yoga 365

Always remember, when you root down you will automatically rise.
