Although beautiful, the autumn season is likely to cause tensions and fatigue in the body.
Practising yoga can help reduce both physical and mental discomfort.
Here are some asana suggestions that meet different needs.
Torsion of the column with hands in prayer
Suck in the navel towards the spine and exhale to go a little deeper into the twist.
Focus and attention:
Engage the abdominal muscles to support the back and slightly bend the supporting leg in order to keep the hips straight.
Energy and awakening:
Keep the head in the extension of the column to protect the neck. Breathe deeply.
Tranquility and relaxation:
Bending with feet apart
If the column is very rounded, slightly bend the knees and further spread the feet.
Take 5 deep breaths
Sit in a comfortable position to lengthen the column and close your eyes. Inspire through the nose and count to 5, then exhale through the mouth and count to 5.
Yoga teacher at Wanderlust and Énergie Cardio, Lolë ambassador for three years
I discovered yoga in 2008. Having done ballet from childhood to adolescence, I found in yoga the same benefits that dance brought me, and even more. In 2009, I started teaching different styles to group classes in fitness centres. This experience was very rewarding to me because, among other things, it helped develop my confidence. Meanwhile, my passion for yoga has grown steadily. Last year, I made the best decision of my life, which was to follow the Wanderlust teacher training. What I want more than anything is to continue to learn and to help students through the practice of yoga.
