🧘🏻Yoga-style inversions can help build upper body strength and balance.
🧘🏻All inversions can help improve circulation to your brain and stop lymphatic fluid from pooling in your legs.
🧘🏻Being upside down gets you out of your comfort zone and can be fun!
Some people say it also helps them with back pain, although its efficacy with long-term pain hasn’t been proven yet in studies.
And don't worry if being upside down seems a little scary... there are many ways to practice, depending on your needs and comfort level, so there are no excuses not to do it!
Here are a few great ones to try:
🤸🏻Assisted Inversions: lie on your back on the floor, with your legs extending UP a wall or over the top of a chair/couch cushion.
🤸🏻Yoga Inversions: begin with Downward Dog pose and work up to full-on headstands… check out this link for progressions: www.yogajournal.com/poses/turn-your-practice-upside-down-guide-to-inversions
🤸🏻Use an inversion table.
