Pose of the week: Salamba Sirsasana

As a certified yoga teacher, you should know the sanskrit names of the poses you are teaching. Maybe, with time, one or two can be forgotten…You are used to say them in English or Spanish and the Sanskrit name just dissapears from your brain or you start to doubt. So, to avoid this, I...
