Shoulder variations for improved inversions. Enhancing your practice of inversions such as pincha mayurasana (forearm balance), adho mukkha vrksasana (handstand), and sirsasana (headstand) can be significantly improved by enhancing the flexibility and functionality of your shoulders. By working on shoulder mobility, you can alleviate strain in your neck and upper back, bringing a sense of lightness and ease to inversions that might have previously felt burdensome and tense. This improvement allows for smoother and more even breathing while in the pose, leaving you energised rather than fatigued once you complete it. This class focuses on specific shoulder-opening movements that isolate crucial actions from each of these three inversions, aiding your progress and development.
