Yoga Posture Exercise for the Body Shape you Want - Week 3


Its Week 3 of the Series ...as a reminder here are the links to Week 1 and Week 2.

So lets start this week's sequence.

1. First Thing in the Morning

Upon waking up clean your tongue, mouth and teeth and wash your face

2. Before taking any breakfast

Drink half a cup of warm water

3. At a time of the day that suits you ... breath

Whether it is first thing in the morning or mid afternoon or the evening sit and make yourself comfortable and breath 7 rounds of nice easy breathes. A round is made up of 1 in and 1 out breathe.

4. At a time of the day that suits you AFTER breathe work in 3 above

Stand straight, as still as you can, placing your arms along the side of your body. Keep your feet together and eyes open. Do this for 1 minute. Repeat this for 1 minute with eyes closed. You should be still and no wobbles with excellent balance now for this minute.

5. Next repeat 4 above but this time with EYES OPEN on TIP TOES for 2 minutes

6. Next repeat 5 above but this time with EYES CLOSED on TIP TOES for 2 minutes

7. In yoga this is the foundation pose, vriksasana, tree pose on the left leg

Stand straight, as still as you can, placing your arms along the side of your body. Keep your feet together and eyes open. Bring your hands together in prayer mode and bend your left knee and bring your foot to rest against the ankle of your right straight leg - picture 1. Do this for 2 minutes. Repeat this for 1 minute with eyes closed.

8. Repeat 7 with the right leg

Stand straight, as still as you can, placing your arms along the side of your body. Keep your feet together and eyes open. Bring your hands together in prayer mode and bend your right knee and bring your foot to rest against the ankle of your left straight leg. Do this for 2 minutes. Repeat this for 1 minute with eyes closed.

9. Repeat 7 and 8 left and right legs with eyes open bring the foot of the bent knee and place it on the inner thigh of the above the standing leg, picture 2 and 3. Hold this on each side for 2 minutes and build it up to 7 minutes.

You will find that vriksana tree pose is one of the best if not the best, it improves your sense of balance and coordination and therefore poise.

Continue this practice for the next 7 days. At the end you might just have that full balance and coordination to hold the full pose as per picture 4.
