Why being upside down is good for you

Updated: Mar 16, 2021

Inversions are an important part of AcroYoga & we love them!

#Headstand, Fore Arm Stand, #Handstand: being upside down literally

gives you a new perspective,

challenging your body to find balance and stability.

Also, it keeps your brain ‘flexible’ by adding new movement patterns.



Inversions are fun!

Practicing #inversions regularly helps to build confidence and,

if you can enjoy the process, it's a lot of fun!

So it's about enjoying where you already are,

instead of focusing on what you have yet to accomplish.


More benefits

√ They strengthen the upper body: arms, shoulders and core,

which is super helpful for your AcroYoga practice!


√ There is evidence that #headstands can facilitate/stimulate lymphatic flow

and help detoxify your body.

A properly working lymphatic system helps prevent chronic inflammation,

which is an underlying cause of many major diseases.
