The shoulder stand, or Salamba Sarvangasana, is great for stretching the neck while strengthening the back and core.

This pose is known to aid digestion and stimulate the thyroid. It is a calming pose, so try it before bed as a way to relax as you prepare for sleep.

While on your back, lift your legs straight into the air, using your hands to support the back as you lift it off the ground. Hold the pose for a minute or two, or for as long as you are comfortable.

Check back in tomorrow for the next video in our yoga challenge series.

Our 30 day yoga challenge

Each day you will be learning a new aspect to the practice, so in a month you will have learned the basic yoga poses in depth, so that you can participate in classes or do a proper sequence by yourself.

Yoga is a meditation that anyone can do. You don’t need a specific body type to master the practice, you just need the right skills – and you don’t need to be bendy to do it, that’s myth we’d like to dispel. Just do the moves and you’ll feel the magic. Our 30 day challenge will give you the skills to become a true yogi.
