Shirshasana (the headstand) is the king of all yoga poses. I try to do one for 3-5 minutes daily and here is why:
- It flushes nutrients to the face helping your skin to glow.
- Adrenal glands are flushed and detoxified, decreasing depression.
- It increases blood flow and nutrients to the scalp delaying the onset of grey hairs (some say it can even reverse it back to its old colour!)
- Improves circulation.
- Strengthen core muscles.
You should first learn a headstand from a qualified teacher. They are not recommended if you have neck injuries, extremely high blood pressure, ear and eye problems, if you are menstruating, or have acid reflux.
