subtle yoga: breath of joy

"The strong inhalations and synchronized arm movements, awakens your entire system —increasing oxygen levels in the bloodstream, temporarily stimulating the sympathetic nervous system, circulating more prana, and gently stoking agni. The forceful exhalation lightly detoxifies the body and helps release pent-up tension."

Calms and restores the nervous, endocrine, circulatory and immune system.

Inverted Poses.
"These poses use gravity (the heart is superior to the head) to control the blood pressure. In addition to full inversions, such as Headstand and Shoulderstand (Sarvangasana), there are several “partial” and” gentle” inversions that are as effective at stress reduction as full inversions."
