We have chosen Sundays from 4.30-6.30 to conduct workshops because Gemayzeh is calm, we have already digested the Sunday lunch and it is a good overall (satvic) time to teach and learn.If the headstand is not in your practice yet I hope you can join us.The 25th of January 4.30-6.30 Head Stand Workshop
There is a reason why this asana (yoga posture) is called the king of all asanas. It is the yogin’s best kept secret. Not all secrets are hidden in far away places, some secrets are out in plain sight, but our attention has not been directed towards them.
Reading from books and from the internet about yoga and about yogic practice is most of the time lacking something. That something is the voice of the teacher. In other words the oral tradition. When a teacher gives and authorizes a student to practice a certain posture, the student becomes empowered with the prana of the teacher.This is how this spiritual practice spreads. Without the teacher’s (who is on a spiritual path) input, the practice becomes gymnastics. I invite you to come on Sunday to learn from me the King of all postures. Here are some well known benefits:
1. By reversing the flow of gravity, a headstand simulates a “face lift” by letting your skin hang in the opposite direction. The inverted position of a headstand also flushes fresh nutrients and oxygen to the brain cells, the eyes, the skin, the scalp.
2. The internal organs and the glands are inverted and thus they perform their function more efficiently, they secrete hormones, enzymes, and digested fluids into the blood stream, because they do not have a pump like the heart, the rely on the blood circulation, and the headstand uses gravity to improve the irrigation of these vital organs.
3. Of particular importance is the pituitary gland also referred to as the master gland. The pituitary gland along with the hypothalamus secrete hormones that tell other glands what to do. Vital to our wellbeing, is the health of this pea sized gland.
4. Headstand is the posture that helps get rid of fear, and it is indeed an empowering posture.For many of us it is a landmark point in our practiceBeing inverted does not come naturally to most people, and allowing their body to be upside down involves getting rid some obstacles psychological as well as emotional.
5. The headstand help flush out toxins, …at His service Nabil,
