This Week In Nithya Priyan School Of Yoga: Inversions – Head and Shoulders

This Week In Nithya Priyan School of Yoga, we are working on inversions! Shoulderstand (Sarvangasana) and Headstand (Sirsasana), which are also referred to as the Queen and King of Asanas respectively, are considered some of the most beneficial poses to practice in yoga. The reversal in the blood flow improves circulation, energizes, and increases immunity by allowing the lymph nodes to travel into the respiratory system. Not only are the physical benefits immense, inversions also give us a new perspective on life by turning our world literally upside down.

Find your new perspective this week on the mat with us!
