Shoulderstand: Precautions, Benefits, Practice Tips, Sequencing


The Shoulderstand is considered the queen of yoga asanas. In this two-part audio yoga download, Iyengar teacher Judith Hanson Lasater explores these questions and touches on the anatomy, preparation, and precautions:

• How does shoulderstand complement headstand?

• Can it be practiced without practicing headstand?

The practice of yoga is fundamentally an act of kindness toward oneself. This idea is often forgotten, but not by Judith, whose approach is warm, non-judgmental and responsive to individual differences and needs.

Your website is a blessing to guide me deeper into my personal practice and my teaching practice.
I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
