Considered the queen of hatha yoga asanas, sarvangasana or shoulder-stand is a profound pose with many layers.  In this exploration Kristina will guide you to a new understanding of what, why, and how the pose can be approached, enjoyed, and of benefited from.

It’s also Summer Solstice and a Full-ish Moon, a great time to hone your solar and lunar energies as the new season begins.  We will:

  • Study the physical structure of the spine and each section’s unique functional movements
  • Contemplate the yogic view of the human spine as our central axis and true core.
  • Explore novel ways to prepare the spine, neck, arms, and shoulders
  • Appreciate preparatory mudras such aa Viparita Karani and Setu Bandha Sarvangasana
  • Refine attunement skills pertaining to entering, sustaining, and exiting any pose; pose as process, rather than product
  • Approach the pose as a Yantra, a physical and subtle meditation for containing and regenerating life force.
