Vinyasa Yoga for Spinal Health

Vinyasa Yoga for Spinal Health

Wrist Friendly – Inversion Free Opt

This Wrist Friendly, Inversion Free Opt. Vinyasa Yoga Flow
connects the breath with the movement to find strength, flexibility, and mobility
to maximize the flow of spinal fluid for optimal cleansing.


Did you know our breath helps move the spinal fluid?

Yep,
an inhale delivers the flow of fluid that bathes the human brain for a good cleansing.
When you exhale, the waste that piles up in your brain is washed away creating better health.

Pretty cool, huh?

Fuller, more intentional breathing is what helps clear the toxins out.
Shallow, short breaths don’t do as much as far as cleansing goes.

“Deep breathing has a greater impact on the flow of brain fluid than short, shallow breathing”,

Vegard Vinje, a PhD candidate at the Simula Research Laboratory.

In addition, moving our spines regularly gives us greater range of motion, better posture, a stronger core, AND lessens your chances of back pain.

Bonus!!

Now imagine how blissful combining the cleansing breath with the movement would be…

In this practice, you’ll get everything listed PLUS very intentional breath movement-coordination to assist in the cleansing process.
🌟 This is why yoga makes us feel pretty darn good. 🌟


Details:

I’ll be performing this practice Inversion Free but you do you.
👉 Props needed IF you’re wrist-free or Inversion Free.
🌟 Good for ALL Levels.
✨ Inversion Free means no downward facing dog, no head stand, no poses where the head goes below the heart. Great for those with glaucoma, cardiac issues, vertigo, acid re-flux, or if you just don’t like going upside down.
🖐 Wrist Friendly means little or no pressure on the wrists but gripping and grabbing are possible.


Enjoy! Be well. 
Remember to breathe. 
🙏🏼Namaste my friends🙏🏼

Post Covid Yoga – 30 min

Post Covid Yoga – 30 min

Pranayama and Yin Yoga to Support Lung Health.

Another wonderful request for a class…

If you have Covid, are post covid, or have some other respiratory illness to recover from, this Post Covid Yoga practice supports lung health with 3 types of pranayama to increase your oxygen.

Even if you don’t have the ‘vid, this class is fabulous for slowing down this holiday season and taking some time for self-care. The more you care for yourself, the more you can care for others.

There are no standing poses and this class uses gentle asana with 1 min Yin Yoga holds focused on opening the chest and rib areas.

This can easily be done in bed if you’re not feeling well enough to move onto your mat. Just use your pillows as your supportive props.

As you move through this class, if you become tired or out of breath — stop. Take as long as you need to rest and come back to it when you feel ready.

FYI—I’ll be performing this practice Inversion Free but you do you.

👉 Grab some props; Blocks, Bolster, Pillows, Blankets, etc.
🌟 Good for ALL Levels.

👉 No props unless you want ‘em.
🌟 All levels welcome

If you are Inversion Free, please make sure you have props handy to ensure your head stays higher than your heart.

As always, this flow has some creative ways to be hand free and wrist free. In fact, I found this quote which will now live on my vision board because it is right on the money.

“Life is a continuous exercise in creative problem solving.”

~ Michael J. Gelb

Maybe you feel the same way? If I have a lack of enjoyable problem solving, like making these fun vinyasa flows, I find I get bored, sad, and a little depressed. Although, I’ll admit, the problem solving I don’t like so much adds up too — it keeps life interesting even if it’s not my favorite problem to solve.

Happy yoga-ing! Hope you enjoy this creative vinyasa flow.

   Enjoy! Be well. 
  Remember to breathe.
