Shoulderstand: (Salamba Sarvangasana) (sah-LOM-bah shar-vahn-GAHS-uh-nuh) Coined the "mother of yoga postures," this pose benefits ALL parts of the body and should be practiced daily to feel refreshed and renewed! Benefits (some of the many): stretches the neck and shoulders, while toning the legs, buttocks, back, and abdominal muscles; helps calm the mind, relieving stress and mild depression; brings clarity to the mind; relieves insomnia, asthma and reduces fatigue..... .....I could go on and on....if you want to know more benefits, message me!
@onesmile~ not at all! Different poses have a different effect on different people....that is why I am always careful when saying that a pose (like Child's Pose) should feel really good to everyone because some people find that pose painful. Anyway, glad it is relaxing for you!!
@peteryang292~ See my Plow Pose picture. This is normally the pose a person will start off with before shoulder stand.....!
@curateyoga awesome :) I never really thought of it that way, but it makes so much sense that people favor/find different poses more comfortable
is it weird that I find this position SO relaxing?!
@curateyoga Thank you! I'll definitely check it out and let you know how my attempt goes =)
