Shoulderstand (sarvangasana) restores a stressed nervous system, cures physical depletion, and heals the emotional body. Bring this tremendously beneficial pose to your students, safely, with care, competence and confidence.

What you will learn:

  • The flexibility and functional movement requirements for shoulderstand and which poses can bring these to your students.
  • How to assess a student’s neck and shoulder scenario and configure props to support that scenario for safe, long-term practice.
  • How to develop your eye to spot and rectify common shoulderstand hazards.
  • A progression of sarvangasana alternatives, from supine to the full pose, so you can share the most appropriate version for each student, ensuring everyone receives the benefit of shoulderstand in a way that honors their current flexibility and musculoskeletal integrity.
  • Recommended strategies for lesson plans which gradually train your student base to find success in sarvangasana.

This workshop is only for yoga teachers and those currently enrolled in a yoga teacher training program.
