Sirsasana and Sarvangasana – Weekly Intermediate Class 57

Focus: This class offers a comprehensive review of headstand (sirsasana) and shoulderstand (sarvangasana). These fundamental poses form the nucleus of an Iyengar yoga home practice. In addition to the full classical poses, both asanas are broken down into preparatory stages that will strengthen and build understanding. This class will be ideal for anyone who is new to the Yoga Selection Weekly Intermediate Classes. The poses are taught methodically, and links are made with the work from the Beginner Extension Courses I and II. All of the basic techniques of both poses are consolidated and explored in detail. The class will be of interest to newer students, but will also help more experienced students who are looking to revise key points, and improve technique. Although beneficial as a stand alone class, this video will also be a great addition to some of the other intermediate classes that do not already contain inversions.

    I loved this class! I really appreciate the way you teach. I live in a place with no Iyengar studio nearby and these classes have been a true oasis for me. Thank you!
