Inversions actively reverse the internal organs, massage, renew and bring real joy. They efficiently remove toxins, slow down ageing and make those extra years of your life healthy and happy.
Inverted asanas are Sirasansa (head-stand), Sarvangasana (shoulder-stand), Halasana (plough), Karnapidasana (blocked-ears posture).
