This variation in Sirsasana uses the chair as support for one of both legs.

This variation is very accessible for beginners who are still struggling with the fear of lifting into a headstand from the floor.

In order to protect the head and neck from excessive pressure from Headstand, it is crucial to lift the shoulder girdle with the shoulder blades firming into the body.

In this variation, the front of the chair seat keeps arms and shoulder muscles and keeps the shoulder blades in place and learn how strong the shoulder blade muscles need to work in free-standing Sisasana.

This variation utilizes the frame of the backrest and the seat to support the shoulders and elbows making the pose more stable as the elbows are blocked agains the frame which helps activate the arms in this position.

โ–ถ๏ธ It also helps us learn and study alignment in greater depth.

โ–ถ๏ธ We can also be able to stay longer in the poses to achieve the full benefits of the asana.
