I have a few resolutions for 2013 but experience has taught me to be realistic.
I will not be training for a marathon and eat 1000 calories a day for the rest of the year.
I am just going to be balanced and moderate.
I used to do yoga in manic but sporadic bursts. I would do nothing for months and then go into a bootcamp like frenzy doing two classes a day. So this is part of my new daily yoga routine.
Keepin' it real folks. Slowly but surely.
It is called - Viparita Karani - Legs up the wall.
You can do this anywhere - at home, if you have your own office, at school.
|Against the wall in the corridor.|
|Outside in the garden or against a tree in the park.|
This is such a simple pose. I do this while I watch my TV shows.
It is really lazy and very passive but it is also so beneficial for you.
To really prepare yourself for a deep sleep - it is better to close your eyes and calm your mind.
BENEFITS OF POSTURE
- This prevents varicose veins and edema.
- It soothes your nerves and slows your system down.
- It relieves minor headaches, and backaches.
- It could ease insomnia.
- Alleviates menstrual cramps.
- Improves digestion.
BUT DO NOT DO THIS POSE IF
- You have Glaucoma
- You have a neck or back injury
If you find this a little tough on the abs - people do use a bolster or a pillow for extra support like this.
|You could use any pillow or roll up a blanket.|
If you get really good you can do it this way.
|Not as relaxing but you get extra yogi points.|
Namaste. Om. Peace out.
