About this Progression

Inversions are an essential component to any regular yoga practice. They're calming, energizing, and deeply restorative for the body and mind. More importantly, practicing inversions for longer periods of time at the end of a workout or yoga class can help reinforce a stable hollow body position that will help strengthen elements in your training such as Handstand push-ups, Muscle Ups, Pull Ups, Dips, Toes to Bar, Burpees, Double Unders, and more.
