Sirsasana (headstand pose) is affectionately known as the king of all yoga poses. It’s thought to reverse gravity’s everyday physical effects on the body while also calming the mind. But any time the head is lower than the heart, it’s known as an inversion and there are many poses that can achieve the same results.
