How many times, due to stress and anxiety, do we find ourselves breathing superficially? Or how many times do we assume incorrect positions that close the lungs? Or do we suffer from asthma or have a cough? For all these conditions, help comes from yoga.Today we will see a yoga sequence capable of improving respiratory capacity, purifying the lungs, oxygenating the tissues and making the skin brighter.
Interlace your fingers together. Inhale, stretch your arms upwards with your palms facing the ceiling and go to the tips. Exhale, come down on your heels and lower your arms, palms facing down. Continue like this for a few cycles.
Spread your legs and bring your toes outwards. Bend your knees slightly, raise your arms and bend them at the elbows, bringing them to the same height as the shoulders, the hands look upwards. Inhale and go to the tips. Exhale, come down from the tips, straighten your legs, cross your arms in front of your chest and look towards the navel. Continue like this for a few breaths.
Carry yourself sitting cross-legged. Stretch your arms out in front of you and rest your right elbow in the crook of your left arm. Rotate your palms just enough to bring them into contact, in a variant of the yoga position of the eagle. Maintaining the position of the arms, exhale and rotate the torso to the left, inhale and return to the center, exhale and rotate the torso to the right, inhale and return to the center. Continue in this way for a couple of cycles, then switch arms and repeat the exercise.
Stay cross-legged on the mat. The right hand grasps the left wrist behind the back. Rotate the torso to the left and come down with the forehead towards the knee, exhaling. Inhale and return to the starting position. Exhale, rotate the torso to the right and come down with the forehead to the knee. Continue in this way for a few cycles, then switch arms and repeat the exercise. Finally, release the position, sit on your heels and stretch your arms forward, bringing your forehead closer to the mat, breathe and feel the effects of the yoga sequence inside you.
