Better Circulation and Concentration
Inversions encourage venous return, blood travelling back to the heart, so that our heart does not have to work so hard against the usual gravitational pull. Many people actually find themselves doing strong cardiovascular exercise as they don’t invert their bodies, to have the amazing blood circulation to the brain that inversions offer us.
Inversions also ensure healthier and more effective lung tissue. When we invert, blood perfuses the well-ventilated upper lobes of the lungs, thus ensuring more efficient oxygen-to-blood exchange and healthier lung tissue.
Reduce Blood pressure and stress
When inverting, blood floods the carotid arteries in the neck. It is believed that baroreceptors, mechanisms that calibrate blood flow to the brain, sense the increase in blood, and slow the flow, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, and stress.
The best immunity
When one turns upside down, the entire lymphatic system is stimulated, thus strengthening your immune system. Lymph, like the blood returning to your heart via the veins, is dependent upon muscular movement and gravity to facilitate its return. Invert!
One inversion a day keeps the Doctor away
Viparita Karani (a mild inversion…..ie legs up the wall) is the best example of this, as it is a mild inversion that one can enjoy for at least five minutes with no stress to the body when one is fatigued or even unwell and unable to complete the stronger inversions.
Fascinating stuff!! With problems like varicose veins and edema (swelling) of the feet, when lymph is unable to maintain the appropriate fluid balance in the lower extremities, doctors often simply tell people to put their feet up.

In Ayurveda, it is recognised that foods have different qualities, tastes, and energies. It is important to combine foods well so that we promote digestion, absorption and assimilation, rather than hinder it, leading to toxins (ama) and disease. It is also essential to understand your rate of digestion, and the quality of your digestion to make wise pranic food choices, looking at both cooked and raw food diets.
You will learn how to return harmony to the body and mind by balancing the elements within the doshas through daily breathing practices, yoga poses, foods, herbs, and lifestyle practices to balance your client in all situations and all seasons. It is clear that not every food is medicinal for all, not every yoga posture suits every person, not every health routine is a “one size fits all”. With the wisdom of Ayurveda, you can clearly determine the best way to nourish and vitalise your client by personalising dietary choices, yoga and lifestyle routines.
Join us to learn the foundations of Ayurvedic Nutrition and how to help yourself and your clients implement this ancient approach in a modern world. Learn the different properties of foods and how to combine foods well so that you can promote digestion, absorption and assimilation. Discover your dosha and begin to understand your rate of digestion, and the quality of your digestion to make wise pranic food choices. Find out more and enrol now.
