Today we will practice together a yoga sequence aimed at toning the lungs, increasing their capacity and thus improving respiration and oxygenation of the tissues. In this way, the whole body can benefit, from the immune system, to the energy and mood with which we face the day until our ability to counteract cellular degeneration. Because healthy and strong lungs mean to breathe well and to breathe well means to be healthy.
You are sitting on your heels, your back is straight and your shoulders open. The hands are placed on your lap, one above the other and with the palms facing up. Breathe.
Go on all fours, starting from the lumbar vertebrae flex your back making the hump like a cat. Then, always starting from the lower back, straighten the spine. Go on like this.
You are still on all fours, take your right knee off the ground and swing your leg back and forth. Bring your foot between your hands. Take your hands off the ground and place them on your right knee. Open your chest, look up and breathe. Then repeat on the other side.
You're on all fours, lift the backs of your feet off the ground. Come down with your chest to the ground. Then put your whole body on the mat. Raise your torso by straightening your arms, breathe in the yoga position of the cobra.
Bring yourself seated, your legs stretched out in front of you. Slowly come down with your torso backwards. Bend your knees and bring your feet closer to your pelvis. Raise your pelvis into the bridge yoga position. Clasp your hands under your back, stay in this position, breathe.
Release the position and remain on your back for a few moments, stretch your legs, breathe and feel the air and energy that, flowing inside the body, support it, toning the lungs.
