Why I go upside Down Every Day: 10 benefits to practicing yoga inversions

Even if I can’t do a full yoga practice, I try to get upside down every single day for at least a few minutes. An inversion practice can be as simple as a standing forward bend or legs up the wall or as complex as a scorpion handstand. Whatever your strength, energy level, and balance allow, put your heart above your head and reap the many benefits of inverting:

  1. Reverse the aging force of gravity
  2. Stimulate circulation & lower blood pressure
  3. Lower pressure on your spine to reduce neck and back pain
  4. Improve posture
  5. Strengthen Core
  6. Boot brain power & improve mental awareness
  7. Calm the mind & relieve stress
  8. Enhance relaxation and promote sounder sleep
  9. Improve digestion and elimination
  10. Elevate mood and combat depression
