Don’t forget to read my other posts about My Yoga Journey.
So far, my teacher training course has been going pretty good. We did some pretty interesting things this week, and we found out something interesting things about yoga, ayurveda and ourselves.
We started off today talking about inversions and some of the myths behind them. But, before I get into the myths, let me telling you a little bit about inversionasanas. First off, I thought inversions were any asana where your feet are off the ground and above your head. I found out this weekend that I was wrong. An inversion is any asana where your head goes below your heart, or your heart goes above your head. For example, a standing forward bend or a downward facing dog are types of inversions. But, that doesn’t mean things like a headstand (one of my current favorites) and handstand aren’t inversion, because if you look at the pictures, you can plainly see that the heart is above the head. Now we didn’t just jump right into these asanas. We had a few things we needed to do and discuss first.
