Pose a Day Series: Shashankasana into Sirsasana

Tuesday: Shashankasana (Hare Pose) into Sirsasana (Headstand Pose)

Both hare and headstand strengthen the muscles in the neck and back.

Both poses are good for giving the heart a break as gravity draws the blood down towards the heart. Both poses are good for the brain.

As you progress from hare pose to headstand take it one step at a time, mastering each pose before moving on to the next. Once you are comfortable in a pose take a few breathes, try meditation (or complete focus) before moving on to the next pose. 

These poses are an offering to the Silver Avenue Family Health Center Community Yoga Class
