Asana – Aligning for Inversions

Take time for inversions and work with a knowledgeable teacher. Work on building core strength and working towards inversions. Opening the shoulder, investigating the middle and understanding the psycho-emotional affect of this pose.

Learn the fundamentals: extension of  spine  in Adho Mukha Svanasana; open shoulders with Adho Mukha Vrksasana, Pincha Mayurasana, Vasisthasana and develop balance and strength with standing poses. The heart works to move freshly oxygenated blood up to the brain and sensory organs. When inverting, the pressure is reversed, and blood floods the carotid arteries in the neck. It is believed that baroreceptors, which calibrate blood flow to the brain, sense the increase in blood, and slow the flow, thus reducing blood pressure and heart rate.
