3 Tips to Improve Your Yoga Inversions
|Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya|
I’ll be teaching a workshop called 3 Yoga Inversions in August and there I’ll be showing you how to improve your inversion practice in 3 easy ways.
We will learn to apply my 3 tips to each inversion and hopefully you will feel safer, confident and encouraged to take 1 more baby step toward your personal inversion practice.
Tip #1 is STABILITY:
This is a MUST with all inversions since one of the worst enemies of an inversion is that wobbly feeling. So the number 1 practice for when you’re on your neck, hands, arms or head is learning how to stabalize the parts that wobble.
Tip #2 is COMFORT:
When it comes to feeling comfort in inversions, you might be thinking “is that even possible?” Yes, when you know that it’s a mind trick. Just know that Tip 1 is all about creating that physical comfort and the rest of the discomfort is coming from your mind. If you don’t mind your mind, it will give you all the grief. So you must train it to keep the attention from going toward fearful thoughts of landing on the person next to you, face planting or toppling over to the other side.
Tip #3 FOCUS:
Ultimately all inversions are designed to improve your mind body focus. Don’t be fooled into thinking you won’t lose your focus. In fact, you will need to work even harder at it. So make sure you remember this, just in case your mind thought that by doing an inversion you get focused – no, it’s a chance to develop your ability to focus. 🙂
Well my friends, I hope to see you at the workshop where I’ll be teaching you how to put these tips into action in 3 variations of yoga inversions. Hopefully we will try a Headstand, Forearm Balance and Handstand and come out feeling like the books say we should: THE KING / QUEEN OF ALL YOGA POSES.
Workshop will be held at 9am on 11 August 2019 at Seva Yoga studio, Parramatta
