Inverted Postures in Iyengar Yoga

Written by Pixie Lillas
‘‘…the inverted postures bring about good health and wellbeing, from the inside out. Headbalance primarily affects the brain and helps to develop a vigorous body, a strong spine and a disciplined mind. Shoulderstand offers some of the same benefits but gives more of a feeling of peace.’’

Anyone practising Iyengar Yoga will have noticed the importance given to the various inverted postures and how these postures form a part of every sequence in every class. Some students are pleased and enjoy them; others struggle with finding the right alignment for their neck or shoulders and perhaps wish there was less of this particular type of Asana.

Why place such emphasis on these poses?
