Sequencing Your Inversions

Now that you know how to do Sirsasana and Sarvangasana, how do you fit them into your practice sequence? Shoulderstand should be done after Headstand (although you don’t have to do it immediately after), because Sirsasana warms the body up and Sarvangasana cools the body down. Additionally, in Sarvangasana, the back of the neck is released and the vertebrae are extended, releasing any tension and compression in the neck that an incorrect Sirsasana may have caused. In a well-rounded practice session, Sirsasana should come after standing poses and before other intense work such as backbends and deep twists. Sarvangasana follows, and then Savasana (Corpse Pose). If you have neck issues, it is better to do Sarvangasana before mild backbends, because backbends can relieve any tension in the neck caused by Sarvangasana.

How long should you hold the poses? The rule of thumb is to hold Sarvangasana twice as long as Sirsasana yet never to the point of strain.
