Shoulderstand (Sarvangasana)

Inversions are extremely important in Yoga, especially as we age. The shoulderstand is a great inversion that stimulates the thyroid gland and the fifth chakra (throat). It reverses the pull of gravity on your internal organs and reduces the strain on your heart. The shoulderstand purifies the blood nourishes the brain and lungs. It also strengthens the eyesight and helps clear the mind.
