Shoulderstand (Sarvangasana)

A group of colleagues and I were at William's house warming party last Thursday.
After some time, our topic was Yoga. And particularly about Shoulderstand.
One of them kept wondering how can we "stand" on shoulders? He could imagine Headstand and Handstand as it was quite obvious, but Shoulderstand? Will we break our neck on doing that?
Another friend then demonstrated Headstand and Shoulderstand using a plastic spoon, which was very descriptive and appropriate!

  1. I can never do shoulderstand. I admire everyone who can. You are very great. Salute!

  2. I can do shoulderstand. But not straight.. I guess I still have no strength on my stomach yet.. or core..

  3. Nice shoulderstand! If u can do this, your plough pose should be pretty good too.
