Headstand Workshop

Inversions are considered to be some of the most effective yoga poses for focusing the mind, detoxing the body, and soothing the soul.

Considering most of our lives are spent with our heads held high, legs below and feet grounded, reversing this arrangement feels like a refreshing change of pace.

Plus, it has lots of benefits. For starters, inversions build upper-body strength, balance and confidence.  They also prompt you to see the world from a new perspective! 

Moving into postures where your head is lower than your heart also helps to prevent lymphatic fluid from pooling in your legs (a result of our upright lives), while increasing circulation to your brain—a combo that instantly boosts energy.

Then, there’s the fact that inversions can be so much fun. They give us an opportunity to get a little playful with our practice and not take ourselves so seriously.
