Are you ready to add a challenging yet fun pose to your yoga routine? It’s time to give the supported shoulder stand a shot! It requires perfecting your sense of balance and tuning into your body movements. The supported shoulder stand works on building power and strength in your back, neck and shoulders and is a great stress reliever after a hectic day. The supported shoulder stand may take some time to master but this pose is well worth the effort. As a beginner, you can initially practice this pose against a wall for added support. It would be a good idea to perform the Halasana and Virasana as preparatory poses before you attempt the supported shoulder stand.
