So, if we invert the body during practice, together with deep breathing, we give the organs a chance to return to their original position (the place where they were before the effects of gravity took over)
Inversions are hard however, so this video MAKES IT EASY.
What I propose here is to invert the top part of the body, using POWERFUL FORWARD BENDS that will ensure the organs of the stomach, and the pelvis floor, get inverted...
Then we lay down and invert the legs.
Why? Because when we do the inversions we get these benefits:
- With daily practice the body gets rejuvenated and the process of aging is slowed considerably - - We feel refreshed and clear after a short session like this (just 10 minutes)
- There is a cooling effect throughout the body, a letting go of tension associated with all of these poses. You will feel more open, receptive and calm
- Inversions clear the lymphatic system, which is the system that carries the "garbage" out of the blood... Problem is, this system works agains gravity, so when you invert the body, even in simple inversions like this, you purify your whole system.
- Digestion gets help, and elimination too
REMEMBER to practice on an empty stomach. Early in the morning is better but before sleep it works too...
