If you're having issues with the player:

This is the third in a series of three classes that prepare your body and mind to go upside down into headstand pose (sirsasana). Crista takes everything that you learned in the first two class and helps you establish arm and head placement, the subtle shift of weight and the energy and strength that you need in your body to lift, hold and lower with control. The first class in this series is Headstand Pose: Shoulders and Core and the second class is Headstand Pose: Leg Strength and Flexibility.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa Yoga, Yoga for Strength

As a Christian Buddhist, I found the mantra at the end of this practice to be a sweet reward at the end of a challenging practice. Thank you Crista.

I was almost put off by the fact it was advanced but actually it was fine for an intermediate student with some un-bendy parts, And I loved the beautiful prayer at the end, perfect.
