“Salamba means with support. Sirsa means the head. This is the head stand pose, one of the most important Yogic asanas. It is the basic posture. It has several variations, which are described later as the #Sirsasana cycle. Its mastery gives one balance & poise, both physically & mentally.” #BKSIyengar #LightOnYoga #book #yoga
Tonight I learned a new way to work off of the wall & come down from #headstand. It never ceases to amaze me how I learned something new every week when I take classes at the college. I am inspired by the teachers I am so fortunate to be in a room with. Each one has a different way of communicating the actions in the pose, however, all are effective & leave you gaining new perspective & ways to teach the students I work with. Nobody will ever know everything & that is why it’s important to continue to learn and grow ourselves. It is an ongoing process. 💪🏼🧠

5 REASONS TO GET UPSIDE DOWN!!
They make your upper body crazy strong.
In order to stay in a handstand for any amount of time, you need to be able to actually hold yourself upside down—meaning you’ll be bearing your full weight on your hands for an extended period of time. And yes, it can be pretty tiring, but they’re worth it: handstands strengthen pretty much every muscle in your arms, shoulders, and upper body, making them one of the most beneficial upper body exercises you can do.
.
They build core strength.
Forget crunches—do handstands instead to build up your core strength.
Because they require you to stabilize your muscles to keep from falling over, handstands not only work your abs, they also strengthen your hip flexors, hamstrings, inner thigh muscles, and spinal muscles to create a balanced, super-strong core.
.
They increase balance.
If you’ve ever tried to do a freestanding handstand, you know that in order to stay upright for more than a half a second, you need to be able to control your muscles and make constant adjustments in order to maintain your balance.
Frequent handstand practice will skyrocket your balancing abilities.
.
They help with bone health, circulation and breathing.
When you’re upside down in a handstand, your normal blood floor inverts, increasing circulation to your upper body while relieving pressure on your feet and legs.
They also benefit your spine, increase bone health in your wrists, arms and shoulders, and stretch your diaphragm, your main breathing muscle, which in turn increases blood flow to your lungs.
.
They can boost your mood and regulate your metabolism.
Being upside down not only makes you stronger, it can actually boost your mood, since the extra blood flow to your brain can energize and calm you when you’re feeling down or stressed out.
Handstands can even reduce production of the stress hormone, cortisol, helping to relieve minor depression and anxiety. Plus, since handstands stimulate the thyroid and pituitary glands, they can actually help regulate your metobolic rate—meaning daily handstand practice could help you maintain (or reach) a healthy weight.
Pretty awesome, right?

Headstanding with Miss P 🤸🏻‍♀️ the first time I did it she pressed her head up against my face and started cracking up! It was sooooo cute! Was hoping to catch it this time but she clearly spotted the phone and was going for it 😝

Fun fact: I do not own a scale 👌🏻
.
Why?
.
For me personally, owning a scale isn’t healthy. I’ve owned scales in the past and they’re dangerous for me. I fall into a trap of numbers. I become almost obsessive. I start to micromanage what I eat, and begin to exercise a TON. It wasn’t until I decided to toss our scale that I felt a sense of freedom from trying to be my “ideal size”. I shifted my perspective from the vanity of a number, to what my body felt good at.
Like I said, everyone is different...but for me personally, listening to my body, nourishing it properly and taking care of it with exercise, is when I feel the best. 💛
This also means, accepting the idea that my body won’t look like these other girls I see because EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT. All different, and all beautiful 💛
Trust your body, it knows what’s up 👌🏻

I practice yoga to take the edge off of life, to lessen stress and create space in my body. I practice yoga to stretch my body and improve my health, posture and overall well being. I practice yoga to feel light and strong at the same time. I practice yoga to cultivate balance, focus and mindfulness. I practice yoga because it feels better than not practicing yoga. I practice yoga to create awareness and openness. I practice yoga to become less reactionary. I practice yoga to calm and center myself. I practice yoga as I practice ahimsa, non harming. I practice yoga as I harness and control prana, life force energy. I practice yoga because I am a better human to all beings when I do. I teach to share this joy with others.

Officially an inversions junkie 🤸🏼‍♀️ Did you know that being inverted can leave you feeling much more energised, focused & clear? The next time you’re feeling flat, drained or blah (I am looking at you 3pm slump👇🏻), try it 👌🏻 Being upside down promotes reverse blood flow, improved lymph function and simulates your adrenal glands to produce less cortisol 🙌🏻 That’s a whole lot of health benefits wrapped up in a neat little movement 🎁
#namaste ✌🏻✌🏻
a lotus flower grows through mud and murky water to become its most beautiful and perfect form, representing enlightenment and self awareness.🖤
so do the rest of us, we are none but lotus flowers growing through mud. good thing we don’t have to grow alone. ♥️
