Sarvangasana Or Shoulder Stand Health Benefits
Shoulder Stand , Name Description: ‘Sarva’ means everything. ‘Anga’ means body part.

Lie on your back and place both legs together. Stretch out so that both hands are close to the body. Let the palms rest on the floor. Inhale in this position. Bend the legs so that the breath is out and bring the abdomen to the knees with the back touching the abdomen. Raise the legs. At the same time sit the elbows well on the carpet and hold the pubic part with both palms and lift the knees above and straighten the legs. Move the arms down from the high backs of the legs and place the palms behind the chest joint to support the bodyweight equally in both hands.
Keep the legs in a relaxed position without stiffening. Let the jaw imprint on the chest. Stay in this position for 3 to 5 minutes with normal breathing and practice for as long as possible (a few seconds) during the initial workout. Then bend the legs and slide the buttocks down with the hands and stretch the arms and legs straight and go to the supine position. People with low curvature of the neck and back and obese people should practice the above method.
As the body progresses to the point where it can lift upwards without bearing the arms, it is necessary to bring the legs behind the head without bending the knees and lift the legs and do the squat.
The legs should die down without bending even when the exercise is over. Where to focus: Focus on keeping the throat, neck, and bodyweight equally on both shoulders, keeping the body relaxed, and on the vicious wheel. Exercise Tip: When lowering the body, lower the back without lifting the head above the carpet and lower the legs.
