Yoga video tutorial for shoulderstand & plough poses

After the headstand comes Sarvangasana (Sanskrit: सर्वाङ्गासन), the Sanskrit name for the shoulderstand, comes from the word “sarva”, meaning whole. This asana strengthens your entire body; it gives many of the benefits of the Headstand, but here the circulation is directed to your thyroid gland instead of the head and it gives a great stimulation to your metabolism. It’s an inverted pose, with your body resting on your shoulders.

Check out the step by step asana on this page.

=> Check out this short tutorial video of Sarvangasana followed by Halasana:

Om shanti -ॐ शान्ति

Practice yoga using this blog

Maybe you browsed this blog already and know that the entire Sivananda yoga class is described for your use and benefit.

In order to share the teachings of Gurudev Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda even more, I’m posting a daily reference to a full 90′ class on the Facebook page to encourage practitioners to come to the blog and discover the entire sequence with its benefits and step-by-step guidance per exercise or pose.

Sun Salutations_Sivananda Yoga

Start your class with Savasana, followed by 3 “Om’s,  Pranayama (Kabalabathi & Anuloma Viloma), then warming up the body with Surya Namaskara and leg lifts, on to the asana sequence:

  1. Sirshasana
  2. Sarvangasana
  3. Halasana
  4. Matsyasana
  5. Paschimotanasana
    1. Purvotanasana
  6. Bhujangasana
  7. Salabhasana
  8. Dhanurasana
  9. Ardha Matsyendrasana
  10. Kakasana
  11. Pada Hastasana
  12. Trikonasana

You end your class with a nice long Savasana and then 3 “Om”s.

Om shanti -ॐ शान्ति
