One of the most common questions we all have when we start our inversion routine is: how long should I invert?
And the answer is easy. First time inverters should start inverting in 1-2 minute sessions for 1 or 2 weeks. It will take time for your body to adjust and for you to feel comfortable inverting for a longer period of time.
Once you feel you are becoming accustomed to being inverted, gradually increase your time until you can invert for 3-5 minutes each session. Even though there isn’t necessarily a time limit to inversion, remember to listen to your body – it’s important for you to relax and enjoy the experience. If you feel you’ve had enough, whether that’s two minutes or 30 seconds, then you should slowly return upright.
