For my birthday month of September I purposed to give myself a present everyday! This wonderful gift was a daily yoga session. Some days were insanely busy, it was hard to find the time for my treasured gift. I don’t want you to think I do yoga well… I am a novice, beginner, newbie, but I love it!!! My busy days amounted to ten minutes of lotus position, relaxing, breathing with head rolls. My determination was at a high and this experience has been great!
I stumbled into yoga, and then realized I was on to something. This is helping me so much! The two poses I try to not overlook are headstands & shoulderstands. There is just something about reversing the action of gravity on my body that I am obsessed with. Little did I know, shirshasana (headstand) is known as king and sarvangasana (shoulderstand) is considered queen. No wonder I like them! The benefits of these two are amazing. Are you ready for my top favorite perks of doing these poses daily?
- Reduces wrinkles (natural facelift) don’t judge, I’m 53!
- Strengthens the heart
- Soothing to the nervous system (relieves stress)
- Increases mental alertness and clarity
- Helps cleanse intestines and overcome problems in the stomach
- Brings health to the entire body and soothes your soul
Sometimes it is important to give yourself gifts. I would recommend learning yoga in a studio, then take what you learn and practice daily. The gift of health is one gift only you can give yourself, no re-gifting on this. It is in your hand, what are you going to do with it? I hope you open it!!!!! The benefits will amaze you. Set a goal, and surpass it! I know you CAN do it!
