I do it based on my intention for the pose in my practice.
And sometimes I do it until I’m too fatigued to do it any longer with the appropriate actions.
[QUOTE=yalgaar;21344]Currently I am doing headstand for around 2 to 2 1/2 minutes on a regular basis. I read somewhere that it is safe to do it as long as 12 minutes.
I was wondering how long other yogis here do their headstand for. What are the reasons for doing it for certain time? I do it for around 2 1/2 minutes becuase I start feeling a bit uncomfortable and also didn’t know 12 minute was a limit. I intend to extend my time little by little more.
I also wanted to ask why 12 minute limit has been set, what are the bad negative effects after 12 minutes?[/QUOTE]
