04 Dec 2017 » Stepping into courage with inversions
In our lives off the mat, we rarely if ever go upside down, and it is natural that for many of us the idea of inversions causes some trepidation. However, inverted yoga poses have many positive effects on the body (and the mind), causing B.K.S. Iyengar to call headstand and shoulderstand the king and queen of yoga poses. Different inversion have specific benefits, but in general, they stimulate the endocrine and immune systems, improve digestion, and tend to have an energizing yet calming effect, while also increasing mental focus. In addition, the act of facing fears about going upside down in and of itself can have a hugely positive effect on your confidence and self-esteem.
