Inversions are awesome. Getting your heart above your head is good for so many reasons. When you change the direction of blood flow in your body, you're helping more blood and oxygen reach your brain. Inverting for even a few minutes a day can help calm your mind, increase your ability to focus, and improve circulation in your body.
Inverting might sound scary or intense, but it doesn't have to be! There are lots of invigorating inversions, but also lots of softer ones. This Restorative Shoulderstand is a great example of a gentle inversion (with all the same benefits of getting your heart above your head).
Lie on your back. Bend your knees and plant your feet on the floor. Lift your hips off the ground, slide a trusty block under your sacrum (that flat plate of bone at the base of your spine), and rest your sacrum on your block. Then just lift your feet off the Earth and stick your legs up in the air! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy.

I'm forever grateful to have been part of something so great. Season 3, Episode 7 will always be very dear to me. #MadMenFinale
Let's help support one another! My friend, @nina_b_roze, designed these amazing workout leggings. Help fund her next collection! She's already 25% of the way to her goal, and you absolutely have to see some of her new designs... 😍
Together, we can kick some butt (while wearing her #HeartButtLeggings): http://www.whosay.com/l/ttMaz6Q 💁💪
NYC with my my mom, @kathysandersmusic. It's our home away from home, our escape (from one city to another).
Happy Mother's Day to my favorite girl. 🌸❤️
I was born to my best friend, which is crazy and awesome. She knows what she means to me, and it's not something I could fit in a photo caption.
I love you, Mama. Happy Mother's Day. 👭 @kathysandersmusic
Hanging out near Gramercy Park with @kathysandersmusic. NYC is pretty perfect in the springtime... 🌸🍃🌸🌿🌸
