Mental balance and physical fitness – health is the greatest human good. We are aware of this again at this time. Yoga combines movement with meditation and can also be easily practiced from home and with the right meditative music such as the twittering of birds and lots of fresh air with the windows open, you dream that you are in nature. All it takes is a little space and a yoga mat. Then follow the so-called yoga asanas. These three exercises are also ideal for at home:
The starting position starts with straight legs, toes and head pointing forward, a straight spine and loose arms. Assume a stable position and tighten your abs and leg muscles. Put your hands on your hips. As you exhale, lift your right leg so that the knee is at a 90-degree angle from your body. Lean your right foot flat against your left thigh, just above the knee. Then stretch your arms and hands over your head. Hold the position for a few seconds to minutes. Balance and concentration are trained. Muscles and mind are strengthened.
Beginning of the exercise:Place your feet shoulder-width apart. As you exhale, place your left foot forward in line with your back foot. The hips and shoulders are facing forward. Palms face inward. Bend the front leg so that the knee is above the heel. Spread your weight over your left leg as you exhale. Breathe in and out slowly for 30 seconds in a stable position. The chest opens, energy flows through the body and blocked airways are cleared. Then repeat the exercise with the other side.
The side plank
This exercise is suitable for more advanced yogis. The starting position begins in the side position and with the right arm supported on the floor. Raise your pelvis and support it on your right arm. Rotate the upper body and place the left foot on the floor at the level of the right knee for stabilization. Advanced users place their left foot directly on their right hand. Inhale and stretch your left arm straight up over your head. Tense the inner muscles of the thighs and abdomen. The head faces the left arm and is directed vertically to the sky. Hold this position for five to eight breaths and switch sides. The exercise sharpens the sense of balance, provides better control over the muscles and strengthens arms and wrists.
The exercises can be repeated at will. Then it's time to take the last relaxation Savasana - yoga sleep. Practitioners lie on their backs with arms and legs stretched loosely, with their palms and head raised, and breathe consciously and rhythmically through their noses with their eyes closed. It is important to lie down as warm and comfortable as possible with pillows, socks and blankets for at least ten minutes, to rest and let your mind wander.
