My Day1 Yoga

Hello everyone.....Let's start with my Day1 yoga .
Today I will introduce some 'asanas' which can be done at any time.
Sitting  ideal in front of a TV or computer really makes you to put on flab.
     You needn't do a lot of exercise to  decrease  the flab , you can relax in one of the following poses illustrated below even  while watching TV. These 'asanas' can be done at any time.There are no restrictions or time limit for this 'asanas'.      
It is also known as 'Thunderbolt Pose' or 'Diamond  Pose'.

Note: Initially it is very difficult to sit in this pose.So try doing 'Ardha padmasana'. Slowly practise it by increasing the time.  
Ardha Padmasana:It is also called 'Half Lotus Pose'

  • Procedure:
    1.Sit stretching both the legs
    2.First fold the left leg to the upper right leg.
    3.sit for some time in this pose.
    4.Now remove this pose and fold the right leg on the upper left leg.
    5.Sit for some time in this position.
  • Benefits:

    2.It also improves digestion and helps in concentration and relaxation of mind. 
    3.This pose is very suitable for mediation.

  •  Savasana:
    It is also called 'Corpse Porse'.

    1.Come to lie down on the back. 
    2.Let the feet fall out to either side.
    3.Bring the arms alongside the body, but slightly separated from the body, and turn the palms to face upwards.
    4. Relax the whole body, including the face. Let the body feel heavy.
    5.Let the breath occur naturally.
    6.To come out, first begin to the deepen the breath. Then move the fingers and toes, awakening the body.
    7.Bring the knees into the chest and roll over to one side, keep the eyes closed.
    8.Slowly bring yourself back up into a sitting position. 
    9.Lie on the right side before coming up from this position.

    No yoga session is complete without the final pose – Savasana. The body needs this time to understand the new information it has received through practicing yoga. Even though Savasana is a resting pose, it’s not the same a sleeping! You should stay present and aware during the five to ten minute duration of final relaxation.
      If u feel tired or stressed after doing any asana then do corpse pose for some time then the body will come into normal condition.

    Quick Tip:

    Lying on the right side is preferable before getting up from asanas or sleep?Why not  left?
    1.Your heart is on your left side. When you roll to your right, your heart is above the organs on your right side, it's less weight on the heart. It's not that big of a deal, but if you rolled to your left, the heart would have a bit more pressure on it.

                      2. You roll to your right side because you want to cool down and remain calm when you  come up to a seated position.
