YOGA INVERSION BENEFITS | why are they good for your body

 

YOGA is everywhere these days. Inversions pop up on all kind of social media platforms. Just to point out a few like hand stand, head stand, forearm stand, shoulder stand and many more. Nevertheless, yoga inversions are just another category of yoga postures (asanas). Often they are practiced in intermediate or advanced yoga classes. Most instructors shy away from integrating inversions into their routines all together. Beginner Yogis are afraid or timid about going up-side-down.

Yet inversions are of great significance of a well-rounded yoga practice.

 

WHY PRACTICE INVERSIONS

 

Inversions like headstands and shoulder stands can be very invigorating and heat building. They can energize the sympathetic nervous system. Going up-side down at the end or conclusion of a yoga practice can be calming and relaxing (parasympathetic nervous system).

In fact, yoga inversions are poses that brings your hips above your heart and your heart above your head. Downward-facing dog or standing forward bend can be considered an easy inversion.
