Block Set up for Sirsasana

If you want to learn how to work in a Sirsasana preparation, this block setup allows you to open the upper back and neck, and encourage the lift in shoulders that's necessary for Sirsasana. Focus on engaging the muscles that spread shoulder blades away from each other, away from the floor, and toward the rib cage. This action will build the upper-body strength you will need in Sirsasana, and protect the head and neck.
