♀️Inversions - check out Rachel’s first ring inversion♀️
Do you know the benefits of being upside down? ..
🧠 Reverses blood flow in the body and improves circulation, by using gravity to provide the brain with more oxygen and blood, improving mental function, concentration, memory and ability to process
.. Do you suffer with the 2/3pm slump, get upside down. Inversions such as handstand, headstand and forearm balances (heating inversions) get the blood moving to the brain, giving you a revitalised feeling afterwards
Increases immunity and prevents illness, here I’m talking about the lymphatic system. Lymph’s/ lymph nodes are responsible for getting rid of toxins and bacteria. By getting upside down you let gravity do the hard work allowing lymph’s to travel to the respiratory system to rid toxins which is where most toxins enter the body. .. 🧘🏽♂️ Relaxing, cooling inversions such as shoulder stands and legs up the wall work to calm the nervous system activating the nerves to produce feelings of calmness and balance.
Builds confidence and keeps us humble, sure the first one may bring a feeling of “I can’t do it” but once you get it, it just feels like a sense of achievement and reminds us of the journey of learning, not just simply being at the destination. ..
Increases core strength, which is vital to everyday moving. ..
♀️Inversions are fun, releasing our inner child, it’s a time to be playful and why should the children get all the fun. ..
Sure there are certain contraindications that should be exercised with caution such as high blood pressure, neck injuries, stroke and many more, if your ever unsure please ask your doctor. ..
Happy getting upside down
