Asanas for body balance with wall support for a strong start.
Asanas offer a gateway to a deeper connection between the body, mind, and breath.
Parvatasana:( Mountain Pose):
- Stand against a wall, arms at sides.
- Lift arms, join hands overhead,
- rise on toes (if ankles are okay), hold briefly,
- exhale, slowly lower.
- Repeat 2-3 times.
The elongation of the spine in Parvatasana promotes good posture and alignment, while the engagement of the core and leg muscles builds strength. The pose encourages mindful breathing, fostering a serene and focused state of mind.
Santulanasana: (the Balancing Scale Pose)
- Stand facing a wall.
- Put your right palm on the wall above your head for support.
- Lift your left leg backward as high as you can, supporting it with your left hand.
- Hold this position for 3-4 deep breaths.
- Repeat the same with the other leg and hand.
The compression in the abdomen encourages the stimulation of digestive organs, potentially aiding digestion. The one-legged stance challenges your balance, enhancing coordination and concentration.
