Place the mat down on the floor near the wall. This may be needed incase you need to roll out of the handstand onto hard ground. If you are using some soft flooring a mat may not be needed.

Hunch down facing away from the wall and place your hands on the floor, press through your hands and feet as you walk your feet up the wall. As your feet get higher you will need to walk your hands closer to the wall as well.

Once in position, keep your back from hyperextending by holding in your abdominals. Now lower your body downwards till your head touches the ground and press up through your hands till your arms are straight again.

If you have painful wrists using press up bar handles can help.
