    love the video..... WOW..... Yoga helped me quit smoking completely. Head stand is the most 'cleansing' pose/ and the best pose for digestive system. I think it activate a lot of chemicals/ endorphins/ and enzymes. The yogis say 3 minutes of headstands are like 2 hours of sleep. I do headstands 20-30 times a day.

    I too have found yoga very transformative and am fond of saying that when done right it's the hardest workout you'll ever do. I don't like risking injury which is why I still use an inversion table and do shoulder stands instead of handstands or headstands, but in time I'll progress to those. Getting closer to my goal of performing a full split!

    SPOILER ALERT - I'm such a softie I practically bawled at the running footage.

    What a great video icon_smile.gif

    I kind of let yoga fall out of my life for a while, but letting it slip is making me realize what it did for me. The physical benefits were great, but the reason I that's pulling me back is mental. Sometimes during the day when everything starts suddenly happening at once and you know you can't control it all but you have to, you get pushed to a point. That point is as close as you can get before you crack. Yoga taught me that when the mercury is rising in my head, stop, eject all the thoughts from your head and breathe. After a few seconds of cooling off, I take another few slow deep breaths and anlayze the situation and make a list of what needs to get done first and why, and so on. This has saved me from enough stress and let me accomplish so much more that I realize what an important part of my life yoga should be in the future

    Thanks for posting that!

    Hey there, Xybender. Are you saying that handstands just like the one you're doing in your main photo is really good for you or the type of "head" stand the guy in the video is doing where he is simply balancing on his head (touching the floor).

    I used to instinctively like these years ago but sort of grew away from doing them. I think I should start again. icon_smile.gif


    .... Any variations of inversions reverse blood flow and increase blood flow,i.e. headstands, elbow stands, hand stands, or hanging from the hip as in Acroyoga (on youtube) ... Start with elbow stands against a wall as they are safest.... it's the best way to cleanse, to keep depression away (prozac doesnot work at all compare to inversion yoga... and they keep your muscle tight.... people do get injuries from doing headstands too soon.... but once you get there, people always say how good it makes them feel.

    It's not so much the power of yoga....it's the power of the human spirit!

    This man's determination, will and belief in himself superceded what his 'doctors' had told him and he proved them wrong!

    Way to go!

    Never underestimate what you can achieve in life!
