When should you not do a forward-leaning inversion?
Don’t do this stretch if you have reflux, glaucoma, hypertension, are at an increased risk of stroke, or have very elevated amniotic fluid levels. I recommend doing this at a minimum once daily (shoot for two to three times a day). Hold it for ~30 seconds, or about three breaths.

How often can I do forward leaning inversion?
