Inversion Yoga Asana/Postures

Inversion Yoga Asana/Postures:

Inverted Asana/Postures reverse the action of gravity on the body. It encourages the blood flow to the brain, nourishing the neurons and flushing out toxins. Blood and lymph, accumulated in the lower limbs, pelvis, and abdomen are drained back to the heart, then circulated to the lungs, purified, and re-circulated to all the parts of the body. Some of the benefits of inversions are reduced stress and anxiety, increase in self-confidence, increase in mental power and concentration, and massaging of the abdominal organs.
