Shoulder stand is a powerhouse of a pose. It's full of benefits and tends to be more accessible than other inversions. In addition to stimulating the thyroid gland, this pose also relieves stress and depression, improves digestion, opens the shoulders and neck, and strengthens your legs, butt, arms, and abs.
If you have neck issues, fold one or two thick blankets under your body so that your head rests just off the blankets on the floor, and your shoulders and arms are on the blankets.
As with everything in yoga, remember that if it doesn’t feel good, skip it. Don’t forget to breathe and have fun!
