Inversions In Yoga
IWhen we go upside down the world appears to be inverted. Here even the simplest of movements can offer an unfamiliar relationship to gravity. The brain is flushed with nourishing blood, the mind clears, the nerves quiet down, and everything seems to become more still but yet awake. Students develop more nuanced muscular coordination that adds stability and ease to a variety of other asanas.
In April 2013 Tammy, Mary Ann, Shirley and Diana visited Kripalu in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Kripalu is a yoga and retreat center known worldwide for its training, healthy living,
rejuvenation and mindfulness. Tammy and Mary ann studied with Bryan Kest while Shirley and Diana studied with Bo Forbes. For more information on Kripalu visit Kripalu.org
