Often, the headstand portion of yoga class is over before you’ve even figured out how to position your arms correctly.

With a new collection of e-books called The Sage Series, Kula Yoga’s Nikki Vilella, addresses this issue by offering a new path for making progress with some of the most difficult poses.

The first volume, Visvamitrasana, the New York yogi includes a 90-minute audio class, a breakdown of the class sequence with photos and videos, and step-by-step instructions for mastering the incredibly challenging pose, in multiple variations. There’s even an explanation of the “intellectual and mythical” aspects of the pose from Laughing Lotus instructor and yogic scholar Emily Stone.

Once you’ve got this one down, you can wait for the release of the other volumes, which will focus on other sage poses like Astavakrasana, Koundinyasana and Marichiasana.

To celebrate the launch, Vilella and Stone will teach a free yoga class from 7:00–8:45 p.m. on December 8 at Kula Williamsburg in Brooklyn, with a party after. Seeing them flow into the pose with ease may be just what you need to get started.
