The Viparita Karani is a mild inversion and is also called the Inverted Lake Pose. Viparita Karani is known to diminish wrinkles and it can make you look younger. This posture will make your blood flow into various parts of your body that requires it. Viparita Karani is often done at the end of a yoga practice, before the final relaxation pose (Savasana) or meditation. In this video Dhivya from Dhivyam Yoga shows us how to do Viparita Karani.
Adho Mukha Svanasana posture replicates a dog bending forward, hence the name downward facing dog pose. This asana can be practiced by any beginner too and with all its benefits, one should include it as a part of daily yoga practice.

A number of people are apprehensive and disinterested to do Sirsasana because of its headstand position and requires some sort of balance. Sirsasana or the head stand pose is the most important among inverted asanas. In Sanskrit the word ‘sirsha’ means ‘head’ and ‘asana’ means pose. It means balancing your body on your head with your feet pointing upwards.
Like all inverted asanas, Sirsasana reverses the pressure of gravity on the organs helping with many health conditions. Headstand Yoga pose is known as king of all asanas due to its multiple health benefits. It speeds up the blood circulation and ensures that brain receives sufficient well oxygenated blood.
