Sirsasana (headstand) is one of the main poses of Hatha Yoga, and referred to as the “King of asanas”, because of the abundant benefits it has on every level; physiologically, mentally, and energetically.
In this workshop we will explore proper shoulder alignment and arm strength as our foundation, defining the optimum curves of the spine, relationship of the ribs and pelvis, the role of the diaphragm, and most importantly the right sequencing of movements and coordination.
We will start with variations of headstands and adapting the difficulty for those working on a solid Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand) , and being able to challenge themselves further if interested.
Once we understand and embody the ABCs of headstands many other doors and challenges will be unlocked in our asana practice, and out of the headstand foundation many other shapes and forms emerge along the central axis, upside down.
Creating a supportive and safe environment for exploring upside down is a priority and I will assure you to leave with valuable experience and knowledge no matter if you are a beginner or already an experienced yoga practitioner.
We will use the inversions to cultivate strength of mind meaning to overcome fear & doubt, to maintain full awareness, a steady mind, breath and concentration in postures that trigger the autonomic nervous system to panic, for the breath to become agitated, to have mind chatter doubting, limiting thoughts…
Yoga is mind training, through the vehicle of the body.
