Ujjayi pranayama is recommended while going through this next portion of asana practice. We will do a separate pranayama session at the end before meditation. To continue on with inversions is the next step. After the head stands and alternative options have passed, we move to shoulder stand (Salamba Sarvangasana).
This sequence is just one of many possibilities. It is only for athletes and students in good health with no medical conditions. These students want to push their athletic limits. Hatha Yoga for therapeutic application is wonderful, but my athletic students want a serious challenge and this gives them what they seek.
