Inversion poses in yoga involve some means of going upside down.
You've heard of these poses in some classes at Inner Bliss: Plow, Shoulder Stand, Headstand, Handstand, Peacock, Crow.
The benefits are plentiful! Turning upside down is good for our brain and our entire nervous system. The physical benefits of inversion poses include:
Strengthening the core and upper body
Bearing weight on hands improves wrist strength and flexibility, and weight-bearing in general improves bone density
Inversions greatly benefit circulation and lymphatic flow
Learning inversions requires stamina and perseverance over time. The psychological benefits of inversion poses include:
- Learning to "fail" a thousand times and keep trying
- Overcoming fear, doubt and frustrations
- Turning upside down gives us a new perspective
- Inversions are FUN and keep us feeling young and playful!
