Sanskrit Name: Sirsasana

Sirsa - Head

How to:


  • Begin in Downward Dog and come down to your knees.

  • With the elbows shoulder distance apart, clasp the fingers together on the floor and place the top of the head down on the floor.

  • Straighten the legs and walk the feet in.

  • On an inhale, lift the legs up into a straight line trying to maintain core stability and straight legs. Hold for 25 breaths.

  • For a challenge, exhale lower the legs into half pike and hold for 10 breaths.
