Standing on my head


Well, I’m trying a “sirsasana”:http://yogadancer.com/Pages/Sirsasana.shtml#Salamba1 practice. I’m at 2.5 minutes, and I plan to work up to 5 minutes a day. My main problem is breathing; for some reason my sinuses want to close up while I’m inverted.

So, if I’m able to do a yoga practice in the morning, I may just try 5 minutes of this (including balasana and some seated meditation), or I may try right before savasana.

We’ll see how this goes. Upside-down is a different way of looking at the world. You tend to notice a lot of things you haven’t noticed before.
