<Head stand WS>

Mastering balance posture series workshop.

First we were learning about Head stand.

Starting with the discussion how you`ll be able to overcome posture in general.

  1. Do we know how to do the postures correctly?

  2. Do we have enough flexibility?

  3. Do we have enough muscular strength?

  4. Do we have any compression of bones or any structural difficulty?

Good news is that head stand requires not too much flexibility but strength!


講師を務められたのはNama Shivaya Yoga主宰のAya先生です。

チャンティングで皆の心を落ち着けてから, 最初に「ヨガのポーズをどうやって克服するか?」というお話から始まりました。


  1. 正しいポーズの行い方を知っているか?

  2. 充分な柔軟性があるか?

  3. 充分な筋力があるか?

  4. 骨格はどうか。骨があたる圧迫がないか?


The effect and purpose of headstand, which is said to be the king of asana are strengthens the spine, arms, legs, and it improves the blood circulation, activating the pituitary gland and the pineal body.

And you might be surprising, but it is also one of the taking rest pose.

It is also a pose that seeks from different directions what you are thinking and also promoting conversion of ideas by changing your point of view with your head down.




Next to the preparation step.

We exercised to get the muscular strength necessary to do headstand. As an indication of the necessary muscle strength, the dolphin pose is done consecutive times…everyone works hard while sweating a little.



After that, while looking at the demonstration, we we realizes that where we should put crenched hands on top of our head and we learn how to make a triangles.


And finally, one student ot a time we do the headstand against the wall. Even if there is a wall, the teacher assist and support us so that we don't have overturn. The student who are afraid at the beginning get over the fear and accept the challenges.




Each student find own problem and overcomes it. The students begin to enjoy doing exercise although little scared.

Some students are able to do head stand in the first attend.




In the last Q&A session, there was a question “How long should I practice as I do in the morning and evening?”

There was an answer.

“You don`t have to do for a long time and complete it at once. “

“You will be able to suddenly be able to do it one day if you continue practicing while consulting with your physical condition and concentration for five minutes a day.”








Even when I succeeded for the first time further developed concentration and consciousness towards my body.

One day, I felt the concentration “ I can go ahead” I remember, that both legs floated from the floor and went up to the ceiling, I felt the connection between the body and the mind. I was suddenly able to do head stand which I had thought I would never be able to.

This was the moment when yoga become fun more and more.



The student who able to do headstand already, could their raised both legs above their heads and lift their face and proceed in the scorpion pose.

I needed muscle strength in my upper arms and I was able to find new goals.




By reaching one goal, we will continue to find the target a little above that. This teaches us the yoga philosophy of physical growth along with the spiritual growth in our daily life.

Yoga is a journey. For a healthier body and mind not only for myself but also for people around me with whom I communicate. To that end, I can gradually do what I can do every day.

This WS is a daily reminder of how I can help myself and everyone around me.
