What do I need to know before I do inverted poses?


The Headstand, Shoulderstand and Plow are powerful postures and must be done correctly. It is especially important to move into and out of the postures properly.

Students should only learn these postures from a teacher. Do NOT attempt them without instruction.

Great advice! Only once you have learned inverted poses from a teacher should you incorporate them into your home practice. And pregnant and menstruating women should feel free to ask for a modified version.
