Sarvangasana pose, known to us by the day to day popular name as - candle-pose, but even more than that Sarvangasana pose considered THE 'queen of poses' and not just because... As free translation Serwangasana's name - it is beneficial to all body organs (serva = all, anga = body organs, and together - " Whole-body ").

Head and neck should be in the center of your body, do not look sideways!

It is best to keep your feet tight to maintain the pelvic correct position.
