Our theme this week is inversions!
There are lots of benefits to turning upside down. When the heart is above the head, the brain receives extra oxygenated blood, helping us think clearly, the pineal and pituitary glands also benefit from this extra circulation helping the whole endocrine system function well. Our respiratory and digestive systems also benefit and it’s a powerful mental shake up, seeing the world from a whole new perspective!
There are a few contraindications that apply to inversions, especially if you have neck issues, but there are gentler options as well as stronger ones, even downwards facing dog and setu bandhasana qualify as inversions, so you don’t have be able to practice headstand to get the benefits.
There is always plenty of upside down time at the Garden of Yoga Studio, and we’ll also be workshopping inversions in Vinyasa Playlist (Thursday 7.15pm at Dance of Life).
Thanks to Vanessa and Julia, for hanging out in the studio with me and Lauren Lederman for taking our photo.
Namaste,
Jo

huffingtonpost:

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.

This is CRITICAL

It’s always a treat when a chicken raising friend drops off farm fresh eggs. Today, they made a fine meal with roasted sweet potatoes, topped with a healthy sprinkling of curcuma.

Thanks, Needy Nancy.

I learned an important lesson recently—

Being a constant support to someone dealing with a life challenge doesn’t make me a good friend. It makes me a crutch.

(A completely emotionally drained crutch.)
