Turn Your World Upside Down!


Hello!

Hope you’re all doing well today. Have you noticed the beautiful flowers popping up all over the place? Snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils... a sure sign spring is on the way!

I just had to pop in and tell you about the very exciting yoga class I had this week. I was at a morning session with Claudia and at the end of the class she gives some time to linger in an inversion of our choice.

I usually do the wheel pose but instead I decided to take Claudia up on her offer of help and asked her to show me how to get into a headstand correctly... and she did. My first headstand... it was so exciting! I was afraid to try it at home for risk of hurting my neck but in class I was shown the proper alignment, how to get up and down safely and adjustments to avoid injury.

Needless to say I have been practising my headstand daily and it has encouraged me to do a little more home practice. Being upside down feels great and I get a real sense of fun and achievement from the pose too. I’ve also been sleeping extra well after a few minutes of evening yoga before bed!

If you’re looking to try something new or for help or tips with your practice, don’t hesitate to chat to your instructor. They are friendly fonts of knowledge and will always give interesting and safe advice.

Headstands (Shirshasana) are often referred to as the king of the yoga asanas. If you’re tempted to give it a try, here are some of the benefits that await you:

• Aids digestion by stimulating the pituitary gland and increasing digestive fire and body heat.
• Strengthens the spine, neck, shoulders, arms and abdomen. Great for improving upper body and core strength.
• Reduces anxiety and stress and increases self confidence.
• Stimulates the lymphatic system helping to remove toxins from the body.
• Gets blood moving to the brain, great for mental stimulation... and an organic face lift on the way!
• Changes perspective. A great reminder that there is always another way to look at every situation.

Remember, if you’re not quite ready for a headstand yet, there are lots of other inversions that will bring similar benefits. Legs up the wall can be wonderfully relaxing.

Inversions can be a bit scary at first but I’ve found that they almost always put a smile on my face!
Give a new pose a try today... I think you’ll be glad you did!
