An Inversion is generally categorized as any asana in which the head is below the heart.And while Headstand, Handstand, Forearm Stand and Shoulder Stand immediately come to mind, there are gentler variations that may be more accessible for students.
Inversions have been shown to:
Improve Circulation, Boost the Immune System, Increase Core Strength, Improve Balance, Build Confidence, Energize, Relax, Give a New Perspective on Life and Are FUN!
Inversions can trigger fear, anxiety, aversion, rejection, excitement or butterflies and like many things are not for everyone
There are certain contraindications that should be observed so as not to cause or exacerbate previous injuries or illnesses: unmedicated high blood pressure, some heart conditions, neck injuries, recent stroke,
detached retina, glaucoma and epilepsy are common issues that should be addressed before inverting. Talk with your doctor and teacher if you are unsure about your status.
In this workshop, Gigi and Marti will guide you through safe and effective sequences that help make Inversions more accessible to you.
Inversions remind us that though Yoga is a contemplative practice, it can also be playful and lighthearted!
