Do you have difficulty with Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulder stand), Halasana (Plough pose) or Snail pose? Do they cause you a headache, nausea or limit your breathing? Have you been practicing these poses for a while but nothing changes? Then this talk is for you.
José offers anatomical information on the neck, which will help you understand what creates the difficulty in getting a 90 degree angle with your hips and/or legs above the shoulders, what you can do to change it and/or which adjustments you can make. You will see that besides tension, the shape of your bones (the cervical vertebrae) also determines the range of movement you have in your neck. This information can allay your frustration, as well as shed light on the assumption that the hips and legs won’t go directly above your shoulders simply because your core is not "strong enough". Enlightening.
