Inverted Postures

In Inversions our world is literally turned upside down – giving us a fresh perspective. Whether we are supported by the hands, the elbows, the shoulders or the crown of the head, the pull of gravity is reversed & we look at the world in a completely different way.

Sirsasana

Sirsasana

In Sirsasana the weight of the body is supported by a triangle formed by the ulnar wrist points & the elbows, with the crown of the head firmly nestled between. This connection draws the energy up the body, into the feet as the feet aspire toward the heavens.

The alignment in Sirsasana is the same as the alignment in Tadasana, just inverted. The hips stacked over the centre of the triangle connected to the Earth & the ankles stacked over the hips.
