Yoga Inversion

Yoga Every Damn Day As a part of A to Z April Blogging challenge, I am going to post a series of Yoga poses. Don't worry I will keep it simple and crisp... and try not to make it boring.


It's time for Inversions... I used to dread these during the first few weeks of my practice. I thought I could never get my legs off the ground. And to top it all I never had a good upper body strength. But as I practised more, activating my core, I could now easily do the inversions with the help of a wall.

Here's few variation of Tripod Headstand or Sirsasana II



Working on my sarvangasana (shoulder stand) and halasana


My dream pose is Forearm Stand or Pincha Mayurasana. But first I need to get away from the wall.


Day 2 - Bakasana
Day 4 - Dhanurasana
Day 5 - Eagle Pose
Day 6 - Fishy Fishy
Day 7 - Gate Pose
Day 8 - Headstand

  20. That's awesome. I have always been fascinated with Sirsasana. Scared to ever try it. I probably should follow in your footsteps and keep at it with the help of a yogacharya :)
