Vinyasa, Building Up To A Safe Shoulder-Stand
Shoulder Stand, Salamba Sarvangasana, known as the queen of asanas, is cooling, soothing to the nervous system, and helps to balance the functioning of the endocrine system. It also reduces fluid retention in the legs and regulates and normalizes elimination. If you are not doing right with support underneath your shoulders your neck may be at risk. Do not stand on your neck, stand on your shoulders. So please practice with conscious awareness and listen to your body. There are other ways to practice this great pose, by taking your legs to the wall and lifting the pelvic from there. Or do a chair shoulder stand which is really great. Here is the link to the chair option: https://youtu.be/3esIwmvez3I
Enjoy and please let me know down below how you practiced and felt after this video.
Here is a quote from BKS Iyengar: “We must create a marriage between the awareness of the body and that of the mind. When two parties do not cooperate, there is unhappiness on both sides.”
