BUYER BEWARE: It has come to our attention that there is a knock off headstand bench being sold on the market. This is not our product and while it looks like ours is not our exact design that has been rigorously tested for safety and durability the past 40 years. The original bodylift inversion prop will help you perform a yoga headstand safely and easily without straining your neck. The beginning yogi may not be strong or flexible enough to do a traditional yoga headstand correctly and end up in a vulnerable position attempting to balance the rest of the body onto the fragile neck. This may overstretch or over-compress the neck vertebrae and discs. The bodylift, however, helps support your neck. Your shoulders rest on the foam cushion. Your head dangles off the floor. Your neck stretches naturally to relieve tension and headaches.

I had read all of these reviews and wondered if they were all true – whether the stand was that easy, etc. Well, it is!! I got it in record time, even after opting for the cheapest shipping choice. It came in a box and even though there were instructions on the underside of the cushion, I had to go to the website to find more. I got it figured out pretty quickly. It comes with a little tool to tighten the bolts, which worked well. I was a bit afraid to try it, as my neck and shoulders were still a bit sore from my “natural”headstand attempts (even though I stopped placing weight on my head/neck, it was still a lot of weight on my shoulders). My hubby was wary of the stand itself, telling me I would get injured, etc. My son wanted to try it, so I figured I would test it first, following the instructions to place it against the wall. It actually IS THAT EASY! My neck is fine, the stand didn’t tip over, and I was able to go inverted quite easily. You still have to be careful on the “dismount”, but that goes without saying, and go into the child’s pose right after to make sure you recover well from being upside down. This is a great product! They should add what the extra cushion is for to their instructions. I had no idea until I read another review (it is for your knees when you come down). 🙂
The headstands are great. I’ve always wanted one of these simple apparatus
The headstands are great. I’ve always wanted one of these simple apparatus. I had buyers remorse though, because it don’t think it would cost $5 to manufacture. This is a $20 item at best, not $200. I feel ripped off and should have known better.
Love it. Makes inversion easy peasy
I have struggled with inversions for three years. It is so hard for me to get up in a handstand or elbow stand and I have neck issues too. This bench is absolutely amazing. It makes it as easy as pie to get into an inversion. I love it so much. I am so glad I found this thing. I wish I’d had it years ago!! It is sturdy and solid and also makes a great little bench for sitting or kneeling and tonight my husband used it as a stepping stool too. But it works awesome for its primary purpose of safe and easy inversions!!! BUY!!! It is wonderful.
it makes a nice, softer landing for your knees as you come …
The “plug” part of the seat is invaluable: place it just to the front of the headstand. When you come down, slowly, it makes a nice, softer landing for your knees as you come to rest after dismount.
It’s a nice chair and has great padding
It’s a little complicated trying to put it together. It’s a nice chair and has great padding! I like that you can make it into a seat when you’re not using it for headstands. When using it, It takes the pressure off your neck and it feels great on my back!
Amazing product and idea
Amazing product and idea! I love my inversion table but I can’t take it with me everywhere, this is by no means portable like a book but if can definitely go in your car and give you your daily inversion needs, it truly helps me study better!
This headstand is great. It is very sturdy and well made. I brought it along to my yoga class and everybody managed to get themselves in to a headstand (some with a little assistance, lifting the legs up to the wall). It takes the pressure off the neck and it feels comfortable on the shoulders (padding of cushion is good). I use it every day and I love it! Also, it comes with a ten year warranty, it is a great piece of kit! There are other headstand aids out there, I did shop around and I am very very pleased with my purchase.
great way to go upside down
great way to go upside down, especially if you are a beginner or if you have an arm injury, like me, who doesn’t allow me to put weight on my arm.
A Great Lift!
I’ve had it for over two years. It’s great standing on my shoulders instead of my neck.
