Using the props for this inversion is helpful for beginners, and for those who find that being upside down movements difficulties, either physically or mentally. For those who already have a steady inversion practice, the use of support in this manner is both restful and energizing. The benefits of Shoulderstand are many. It is often referred to as the mother of the Yoga movements, as it soothes and nourishes body and mind, while building stability and strength. Just as a mother will strive for health and harmony within the family, this beautiful inversion will do likewise.
Avoid this movement if you are menstruating or if you have a migraine or a stress related headache
Beginners shoulder stand 1:15sec hold then transitioning deeper into the pose for another 30sec, a longer hold this time notice the different areas in your body that stop working keep coming back to them and activating them especially as you go deeper into the pose.
