3 Thoughts to “Sarvangasana/Shoulder stand : are not able to breathe correctly?”

  1. What raise are you using under your shoulders?
    You may need more lift.
    And personally, I breathe into the belly.

  2. Is the breath getting caught in the neck or the stomach?

    Remember to be conscious of your breathing.
    Gently push your chin towards your breastbone in order to extend the neck and let air through. Keep the core strong, the spine straight and the legs activated by lightly squeezing the quadriceps.

  3. If you don’t already, try doing your shoulder stand on a folded blanket or two, letting your neck rest at 60 degrees instead of 90, this will open up your upper respiratory tract to allow for easier breathing and less strain on your neck, chest, and shoulders!
