King – Challenge
Sirsasana is the King of yoga postures and is telling you to push your limits. Head Stand wants you to step out of your comfort zone and move with confidence towards your goals. Rejoice in mastering a great challenge. If you have been thinking about taking on a new venture now is the time to do so. Is today the day that you jump out of a plane? Color your hair red? Or stand on your head? If not now, when? If not you, then who? This card wants you to tap into your masculine, powerful, risk taking energy. Revel in the feeling of empowerment, confidence and drive. Then feel the excitement of a challenge.
How to do it: Place your elbows on the mat, shoulder width apart, lace your fingers together. Place the top of your head on the floor with your hands cradling your head, press your elbows into the mat, engaging your shoulders to lift your head slightly off the mat and no longer on the floor. Walk your toes towards your nose. Draw your knees into your chest and when ready extend your legs towards the sky. Wow!
