Note: instead of two blocks, you can use two thick books. This is the first in a series of classes on the essential elements of headstand pose (sirsasana). In this class, Crista helps you with the strength and flexibility in the shoulders that you need to move into and out of this challenging pose, and hold it without putting too much pressure on the head and neck. You won't be doing headstand just yet, so don't be afraid! The next class in this series is Headstand Pose: Leg Strength and Flexibility.

Oh Christa your love and light are motivational and uplifting. I love your cues and your sense of PLAY. :) This flow is retraining my shoulders after my dog walking.
Thank you! Love the class!
This was a GREAT workout...but Christa always makes it fun and calming. While my shoulders are torched and my core is twitching, my whole self is peaceful and content. Perfect class! Namaste
I loved how much work my shoulders received. Wonderful feeling. Thank you!
