Headstand (Sirsasana)
Can you even imagine standing on your head for 10 minutes at a time? Yeah I couldn’t either until my yoga teacher explained to me that many yogis actually do their asana practice with the goal of being able to be in headstand comfortably for minutes at a time. Just like all yoga inversions sirsasana has many benefits, including drawing oxygen rich blood to the brain, helping us improve focus and memory. Alleviation of swelling in the limbs, and improving circulation. BUT I content that it is the trickiest of all inversions.
