Yoga inversions are a great cure for tiredness as they increase blood flow to the brain and other major organs, whilst taking pressure off the heart to continuously pump blood around the body. Inversions allow your bodies a rest from the constant downward pull of gravity, and the increased blood flow to the heads been proved to be both stress-reducing and mood boosting! Whilst inversions bring to mind images of impossible upside down arm balances, an inversion is in fact any pose in which the head is lower than the heart. Popular choices include: headstand, shoulder stand, down dog, or simply lying on your back with your legs up a wall.
