Inversions and shoulders. Many yoga inversions require a healthy range of shoulder mobility. This week’s class features key inversions such as adho mukha vrksasana (handstand), pincha mayurasana (forearm balance), sirsasana (headstand) and niralamba sarvangasana (a variation of shoulderstand). Each pose is practiced with an emphasis on improving the health of your shoulders. Variations are included that will help to clarify and optimise essential shoulder techniques. Practicing inversions with poor shoulder alignment can potentially put pressure on your neck and spine. Over time this can lead towards discomfort and injury. This class will help you to build and maintain a healthy and sustainable practice of yoga inversions.
