Upside Down

With Jack Johnson in the background singing "Upside Down", the Alluem Kids practiced their inversions this weekend! Shoulder stands, headstands, handstands, and forearm stands really get the blood flowing throughout the whole body. When upside down, the brain is refreshed with new oxygenated blood to bring clarity to the mind, while the body develops strength and balance. Inversions are said to have positive effects on 4 major systems including the cardiovascular, lymphatic, endocrine, and nervous system. For kids, it's just fun! Kicking up into headstands and walking up the wall to practice love being upside down!
