The King and Queen of Asanas: Sirsasana (Headstand) And Salamba Sarvangasana (Supported Shoulderstand)

A workshop targeted for the beginner student who wants to learn these two unique poses.

“Sirshasana is really a blessing and a nectar! Words will fail to adequately describe its beneficial results and effects! In this Asana alone, the brain can draw plenty of Prana and blood. This acts against the force of gravity and draws an abundance of blood from the heart. Memory increases admirably. This leads to natural Pranayama and Samadhi by itself. No other effort is necessary”. (Swami Sivananda)

Learn Sirsasana (Headstand) and Salamba Sarvangasana (Supported Shoulderstand) using a beginners mind with mindful techniques.

Rashila, an Advanced Sri Dharma Mittra instructor, will gently guide you and build you up towards a safe, secure and a sustainable inversion often referred to as the “King and Queen” of the poses, or the Father and the Mother of Hatha Yoga. Why is the Headstand the King of Poses? Just like a country cannot thrive without a strong and effective King or Head of State, a person cannot thrive without a healthy brain. Why is Shoulderstand the Queen of Poses? The ancient yogis were making 2 important points; these are 2 important poses and they are a pair. So, for Sarvangasana, just like a mother creates harmony in her home or a Queen creates harmony in her country, doing a shoulderstand harmonises the nervous and the endocrine systems. Sirsasana heats the body whilst Sarvangasana cools the body. If you are eager to include these asanas in your daily practice then come to the workshop and discover for yourself why they are wonderful and magical.
