眼睛看不到，只能用心去支配肌肉的運作。反地心吸力，加上沒有碰到物件令你產生明顯的知覺，這種微妙的神經刺激，正是我嚮往 inversion practice 的原動力。

Day 1️⃣2️⃣ #WildlotusYogaChallengePartII
with @thepracticegroup #SalambaSirsasanaI
The King of all asanas, a great pose to restore - once you are in the pose, we recommend holding it for at least 5 minutes for the benefits to kick in. To name some - healthier skin, rejuvenated blood flow, quieter mind. This pose requires a strong outer body, but soft inner body. The physical body is strong, but inside, you are quiet. 🔺Getting into the pose takes practice and we recommend going to class and trying it under the supervision of a teacher or seasoned practitioner to prevent injuries. 🔺Do NOT purely jump into the pose or hop up if you have never tried it - be wise and respectful of your body, please.
➡️ 1. Shoulders sit on top of the elbows. Fingers are interlaced up to the "webbing" of the fingers but not laced tightly - hold the grip but there is no need to grip tightly. ➡️2. The placement of the head is important - you go on the crown of the head - imagine you're standing tall balancing a book on the top of your head. Where the book sits on your head, that should be where your head touches the floor. ➡️3. The shoulder blades work hard - lift the shoulders up away from the floor.
➡️4. Turn the inner thighs back, but keep the knees pointing straight forwards like the headlights of a car. ➡️5. Keep the legs together. ➡️6. Feet can be flexed, or half flexed - as you hold the pose, you'll instinctively make adjustments - however make sure the spine is lifted (by lifting the shoulders), and keep the legs squeezing together. ➡️7. The alignment goes from heels sitting right on top of hips, and hips on top of shoulders. One straight line. ➡️8. Relax the face muscles. Notice the muscles you're NOT working and relax that. Turn the attention inwards. Hold the physical shape, but relax the inner mind and inner body. ·
🔺Note: There should be no pain in the neck, and
