Headaches during Asana
I read that headaches can result from doing backbends without the proper sequence to ready the body. Could you explain a specific series to follow to properly perform back-bending poses?
Are there other tips on class sequencing to prevent headaches? I sometimes think that doing forward-bending poses, Child's Pose, and other poses that put the head lower than the heart may cause headaches. Is this true, and how do I avoid this happening to my students?

He is one of the world's foremost instructors of Ashtanga Yoga and has produced numerous videos and DVDs. He is the author of the book Ashtanga Yoga: The Practice Manual.
