This a great tip from Kino. I gave it a go and it worked like magic. I will definitely share it with my students.

Keeping the knees closed and allowing the hips to open over time is key I feel-Great tip from Kino.

Ashtanga Yoga Headstand for Beginners: Sirsasana with Kino

I think this is good tutorial for students new to headstand-although I find Kino saying move the pelvis forward slightly confusing, as I would describe this as moving the pelvis backward- but all amounts to the same direction I guess.

Ive never seen this jump back done before- I also found the foot adjustment interesting.

Bhekasana from Ashtanga Yoga Second Series with Kino MacGregor and Dayle...

I have never heard the tip about taking the calf flesh out before-nor the mention of lifting the thighs-Kino always give useful information in her short clips. It took me a long time to get the hand/foot grip correct and my feet most definitely do not touch the floor ;-)

Ashtanga Yoga Intermediate Series: Karandavasana with Kino MacGregor and Julia Lofstrand

I tried this pose for the first time earlier this summer. I managed to bring my knees down, assisted by my teacher, but getting them back up was a different story. I think this is a useful tip that Kino gives about practising from headstand first and moving the leg back to come into lotus makes sense. Now to practice and possibly fall on my head :-)
