Sirsasana (headstand)

baddha konasana in sirsasana IYesterday, I did a 2 hour yoga session at home, which included meditation in the lotus posture. I felt a deep inner peace and tranquility. Although, later on I felt depressed and quite melancholy. So, yesterday was a quandry of sorts…

But it felt good to focus on the headstand (sirsasana) and some variations of it. The photo to the left is the bound angle headstand. I’m quite comfortable at doing the headstand, and it feels rather rejuvenating. Will try to do another 2 hour session later on this morning.

    That is awesome!
    Nope you will not catch me attempting
    any of these moves : )
    Too dangerous for my weak neck.
    Hahaha, my husband would have to hold my legs up.
    But I think he would get very annoyed if he
    had to hold them up for 2 hours : )

    You rock!

    Have a good weekend.

    well, it did take me months to be able to do a headstand for more than 5 minutes. and usually i hold it for 5 to 10 minutes before moving on to other asanas.

    a few good yoga sources say that you should attempt to stay in the headstand for a few seconds at first, and build up gradually a few seconds each day.

    one thing i’ve learn from yoga is patience. sometimes it can take years before getting into a certain posture.
