Focus: Niralamba sarvangasana is an unsupported version of shoulderstand that is practiced with your arms in a resting position. It can be a great shoulderstand alternative for anyone working with shoulder difficulties. It can also be a good option in restorative sequences, or times when you are working with lower energy levels. Balancing in the pose can at first feel a little precarious, but with perseverance, balance can be achieved with a quality of effortless lightness. This tutorial shows how to practice the pose without needing to use a wall.
