i love inversions. sometimes when i'm sitting studying or at my computer, i just have this pressing urge to turn myself upside down for a while.
my favorite inversion in yoga is Salamba Sirsasana (Supported Headstand). according to yoga.net it offers lots of benefits! yoga master Iyengar explains that the entire body is reconditioned by the regular practice of Salamba Sirsasana. in particular, there are four major systems in the body that the practice of inversions positively influences: circulation/cardiovascular, lymphatic, nervous, and endocrine. Others add that it also conditions the respiratory and digestive systems.
