Learn with me further leg variations.
Today, I am sharing with you the next level in your Sirsasana/Headstand practice.
Please check how I teach you the 8 steps to practice Headstand – Sirsasana safely.
Did you know? Sirsasan is the 1st of the 12 main Yoga Postures in the Sivananda tradition – no need to buy yoga pants if you are a beginner, start with comfortable clothes and follow my lessons. You can use any yoga mat for your morning or evening practice.
Make sure you remove any yoga blocks, yoga wheels, or other yoga props from the area you are practicing. Follow my tips! Get into the classic Asana/Posture first!
Step 1 – Define the Space rest in Child’s Pose Balasana- tip: visualize yourself in Sirsasana, develop a Can Do attitude
Step 2 – Form a solid Triangle Base – tip: measure the distance by using the whole palm including the thumbs.
Step 3 – Crown of the Head to Floor – tip: tuck the chin slightly in!
Step 4 – Straighten Knees & Lift the Hips – tip: keep the legs straight!
Step 5 – Walk the Feet Forward with Straight legs – tip: reach the tipping point before you stop!
Step 6 – Knees to Chest – tip: one knee after the other.
Step 7 – Straighten the Hips – tip: keep the knees bend, point them to the ceiling.
Step 8 – Straighten the Knees – tip: bring the lowest rips back, engage your abdomen.
Now stay a moment in Sirsasana and release pressure from your head and neck by pushing the hands, forearms, and elbows down. Ideally, a sheet of paper can be moved easily under your head. Follow the instruction in my video for the different leg exercises. Make sure that both shoulders remain firmly on the floor. When you scissor the legs, focus on the back leg! You can see that I could bring my back leg further down. After the various leg variations, reverse the steps to come out after the asana. Lower your body so that your buttocks rest on your heels as in Child’s Pose. Let me know if you have any questions or feedback!
I am happy to answer those through the comments below my post. Sirsasana is an inverted asana in modern yoga as exercise; it was described as both an asana (steady pose) and a mudra in classical Hatha Yoga. It’s an asana in which you balance your elbows, arms, and head. Known as the King of the Asanas because of its remarkable benefits, the Headstand is excellent for improving concentration and increasing memory. In addition, people who practice Sirsasana on a regular basis tend to have slower rates of respiration and heart rate.
