Level: Intermediate/Advanced

The chair is a great prop to practice both inversions and backbends. Vrschikasana is an advanced asana that combines aspects of both.

Before progressing towards vrschikasana it is important that you are regularly and confidently practicing pincha mayurasana (forearm balance) and regular practice of the backbends urdhva dhanurasana and eka pada viparita dandasana.

Practice this with the chair against the wall, so you can bring the feet to the wall first, and slowly walk your way down to the chair, and then down to the chair seat.

The use of the chair allows you to stay in the pose longer with control so you can work on your upper body strength and gain more mobility in your spine and shoulders so you can practice the full pose without support.

I teach 4 Chair classes a week.
