HEADING TOWARDS HEADSTAND
Final week of Yogareal Beginners Course: 21st – 27th August
Taught “PROPERLY” so the shoulder girdle’s open and therefore supportive. The spine is running – therefore lifting – vertebrae opening, back muscles lengthening, stable and strong. Continuing through the pelvis into the inner leg and feet.
These progressive openings are essential with a strong symmetrical breath, so therefore a headstand practitioner has no undue weight on the head or neck, and enough fire (symetrical breath through the navel and length through side waist, with uddiyanna bandha). So that the posture is light and balanced, and the energy flows to the crown of the head, glands, and energy centres in the skull.
The headstand or shirshasana is considered the king of all postures or the most important of the 84,000 postures.
Be the king of your universe! The first thing is to see everything from a different perspective, this in itself is a revelation and transformative for the consciousness.
