The Festival Of Lights !!
The journey from blackhole (darkness) to singularity (light)
The journey from imperfection (entropy) to perfection (non entropy)
The journey from mortality to immortality(eternity)
And on this beautiful day let us start a new series. The " HOW TO " Series.
We will be concentrating on how an aasana has to be done METHODICALLY AND GRADUALLY. How you go into an exercise and then get out of it SAFELY. 😂 It does sound weird but its true, sometimes you could get stuck in an aasana, and if you did try to just get out of it, you would probably dismantle your body or hurt yourself !
STARTING WITH ONE OF MY FAVOURITES - SARVANGAASAN
And yeah its the doubt you get, why do it ?
Why sarvangaasan ???
Works on cranial plexus
For back pain relief
Pregnant women can do this aasan up-to 8 months of pregnancy.
Improves the blood flow in the head
Works on your entire spinal cord.
Make yourself comfortable first. Don't be in a hurry, don't do it if you are in a hurry.
Touch your feet, slightly stretch yourself.
Now EXHALE, and roll back, hands over your head , keep legs split and hold your feet on rolling back.
Keep rolling back and forth, until you are comfortable and can hold your feet at the back and stay there in a stable position.
There is no limit to how many times you roll, if you are already familiar with the aasan, it will not take you more than 2, but otherwise keep doing it so that you do not strain your back.
Now once you get the rolling bit right..
INHALE.. Hold your waist with your hands, EXHALE and then raise your legs with the split. Bend your knees while lifting your legs that is no problem.
And VOILAA !! there you goo successfully into the aasana !!
And the split is necessary because it reduces the strain on your back and neck.
Now come the variations.
First the cyclinggg. Its awesome to do and watch both. It is kinda mesmerising. 👀😍
Keep legs together, straight up, make sure your waist is also straight aligned with your legs.
And cycle both clockwise and anticlockwise.
Note the postion of the foot at the back, its flexed. while the other in the air is extended.
Here, note the position of the foot. One is flexed while you go up to down (forward)
After you do it clockwise and anticlockwise..comess
This one is a beauty too. It is like a top spin. 👌💫
Fold your legs just like you do on the fold, a simple foldd. 👇 INHALE
You'll get it after the first few times. its just a spin. Check the video out on instagram for clarity, ill post the link below. EXHALE. 👇
INHALE. And go back to the folding step.
Here is my favouriteee.
First off change the postion of your hands around your waist. Turn them around a bit and hold waist again.
INHALE 👇 Note the hand position. or you will hurt your wrist.
EXHALE. Note the hand position.
Repeat with other leg.
And go back straight up legs together, then go to split, then bring knees down to the forehead andddd
INHALE, when your knees are touching your forehead.
EXHALE, and take legs backkk, do not worry if your knees are bent, its better to do it with bent knees until your body becomes accustomed.
Again split your legs behind your head, hold feet with your hands and roll back to the 1st step.
Watch the video on INSTAGRAM to do it better 👍👇
HAPPY AND A SAFE DIWALII for all those celebrating the festival !! 💣💥
