Hanging Out

I love inversions. They literally turn your world upside down and bring on a new perspective.

Headstand is one of my favourites, but I haven't been incorporating it into my daily practise because every once in awhile I screw up my neck. Generally I now save headstand for supervised classes.

So it was a real treat last night to hang out on the ropes at the yoga studio. Headstand, forward bends, down-dog.

Being upside down and well-supported, but not putting weight on my neck or head produces a real floating sensation for me.... I feel my spine releasing tension and my neck and head just "letting go".
