Why You Should Incorporate Inversions Into Your Yoga Practice

Sometimes you need to turn things upside down to gain a different perspective.

For me, inversions help release stress or anxiety because it forces me to be in the present moment, and I love the feeling of working towards something. I’m currently working on mastering forearm stands and hand stands — and the times I’ve been able to hit it have been extremely gratifying. Not because I want to be able to post a picture of it on Instagram, but because it signifies I’ve gained a deeper understanding of my body and have been able to focus my mind.

Benefits of Inversions Include:
  • Increase immunity and prevent illness
  • Energized you and builds confidence
  • Stimulates your lymphatic system
  • Builds core strength
  • Forces you to focus
  • Releases your ego and teaches you to practice non-attachment
  • Calms the nervous system

So even if you are a newbie to inversions, grab a wall to practice and see how you feel upside down!
