There comes a time when the “fix it” approach no longer works. You realize that you need to learn about your body and how your body moves. With this awareness, you can significantly reduce or eliminate your pain.

As a child I used to do a tripod headstand, just playing around outside in the yard. As an adult, then yoga teacher, I had never been able to do the headstand as you describe in the video. I always felt like I was collapsing in my shoulders and that I would probably fall in a heap. Well, OH MY GOSH! I just did the headstand, no collapse in the shoulders, no issues in the neck. Elbows in place, legs just lifted with ease, and my legs didn’t even land on the wall! Can you tell I’m excited?!!
