Feet Up Tips
I have struggled with chronic migraine and scalp nerve pain for years, so in early 2021 when I read some blogs and websites online referring to the health benefits of yoga inversions because they increase blood flow to the brain, I decided I just had to try it myself! (Note: there's no medical evidence, but I'll try anything once)
I researched inversion trainers and decided to go with a high quality, well reviewed Feet Up. It arrived quickly, was easy to assemble and in no time at all became a favorite fitness tool!
But there aren't a lot of resources online for curvy users to help with initial tips and tricks to get you started! I've created a list of things that helped me, but be sure to do what suits you! Check with your doctor if unsure whether this type of training is safe for you. Always use the trainer carefully and safely.
So here's my list:
1. Place the Feet Up Trainer near a wall to begin with! To prevent toppling backwards all you need to do is touch the wall with your feet until you feel steadier.
2. Use an object like these yoga bricks to slowly move the Feet Up away from the wall consistently as you gain confidence and strength
