Acclaimed Yogi B.K.S Iyengar in his famous book “Light on yoga” has described Sarvangasana as the queen of all yoga asanas. Have you ever wondered why Shouldestand gets such distinguished praise? What is so special about this particular inversion?
Well, it is known as the mother of all yoga postures because the entire body is engaged when the asana is performed and greatly influences the functioning of all the body parts. Just as the mother is the harbinger of peace and harmony at home, similarly a regular practice of shoulderstand creates consonance in the nervous and endocrine system for a vibrant living. In addition to the various therapeutic benefits of the shoulder stand pose, it is considered an essential posture for several reasons: Sarvangasana precedes Sirsasana, it is learned before headstand and is much complicated and sophisticated in nature than headstand. Although Sarvangasana can be performed independently of Sirsasana, the reverse is not usually encouraged, and this makes Sarvangasana indispensable, like a mother or a queen.
Make shoulder stand a part of your daily life and feel a sense of peace, confidence, and well being. Ensure you do it under the supervision of an experienced teacher for safe and healthy results.
