Inversions! I remember being terrified that at any moment during a class my teacher would say, “Okay everybody we’re going to practice inversions now.” Anxiety, fear, insecurity; all those feelings yoga is supposed to help you navigate away from all presented themselves, literally all at the same time. Then I learned a little more about inversions, my practice got stronger and now I can’t wait to get better and better at inverting because they make me look super cool… I’m just kidding, even though that’s sort of true, the real reason is because going upside can actually ward off illness. Wanna know how???
It’s official, we’re highly stimulated at all times. Our personal lives are busy, our professional lives are busy, the world around us is busy at all times. There seems to be very little time to retreat and refresh. Even when we’re home “relaxing” we’re stimulated, either by the television or social media, etc. There has never been a time that we needed to slow down as much as we do today. A quick and easy restorative practice once a week could literally change your life and your health. Check it out:
