Turning upside-down in the IEP!

As we approach the end of term one, students are gaining more confidence in their yoga practices. We have practiced a wide array of different yoga postures over the term, however today was a chance to experience something different; turning upside-down in the IEP, more specifically ‘Headstand’ (Sirsasana) posture.
Under normal conditions I wouldn’t teach this posture to students, but this particular group of IEP students this year are showing promise, making quick advancements in their yoga practices.
Inversions are very important in yoga practice, when we turn upside down we stimulate the glands and provide a fresh supply of blood to the head, which can feel quite invigorating. Students worked in groups of three, supporting each other as they became risk-takers, doing their best to balance on their heads. We laughed, took some deep breaths, and had a really good time.
