“graceful inward bow”, wheel pose developed from the headstand


The practice of yoga gives a clear sense of measure and proportion. In terms of our bodies, this means that we are learning to focus on our most important instrument and to achieve the greatest resonance and harmony from it. With tireless patience, we refine and enliven each cell of the body as we attack every day to unlock and revitalize the otherwise idle abilities, condemned to congealment.
