The seated forward bends in yoga, benefits for all the body
In today's video we will practice a yoga sequence based on the seated forward bend poses. These asanas are very beneficial since they allow you to stretch the muscles, prevent sciatica but also help improve digestion by stimulating the work of the liver with a massage on the internal organs.
You are sitting on the mat. Your legs are stretched out in front of you. Raise your arms and, keeping your upper body straight, bend forward trying to reach your ankles or feet with your hands. Raise your torso and repeat trying every time to keep the position a little longer. Then hook the big toes with your index and middle fingers and bend forward.
You are sitting on the mat. Bend your right leg so that the knee falls outward and the foot is close to the pelvis. Lean forward trying to reach the left foot, the back remains straight. Repeat on the other side.
Place your left foot on your right thigh. If the knee remains on the ground and does not rise, continue, bending forward and trying to reach the right foot with your hands. Otherwise do not continue and repeat the sequence seen up to here. Then do the exercise with the other leg.
Let's see the yoga position of the turtle. Bend your knees and spread your legs. Put your arms under your knees. Slide your heels on the floor and rest your forehead on the mat.
