YOGA for a better life

A Recent study found that yoga practice results in changes in gene expression that boost immunity at a cellular level. And it doesn’t take long: The researchers believe the changes occurred while participants were still on the mat, and they were significantly greater than a control group who went on a nature hike while listening to soothing music.

Yoga also helps to boost immunity by simply increasing overall health.

“As you breathe better, move better and circulate better, all the other organs function better.”

Press into your hands to round your upper back, as if a string were pulling the middle of your back to the ceiling.

Lower your belly and lift your chest.

Stay grounded through your hands as you broaden your shoulders. Lift your gaze to look forward or up, and hollow out your lower back.

Drop your shoulders away from ears.

Alternate between cat and cow two or three more times.

Walk your hands forward an inch or two, curl your toes underneath and lift your hips up into downward facing dog.

Your legs can keep a slight bend, but reach your heels toward the floor.

Ground down through all your fingers, especially the space between your thumb and first finger, and press through your arms while lifting your hips up and back.

Stay for 3-5 breaths.

Slowly walk your feet toward your hands, and step shoulder-width apart.

With a slight bend through your knees, lower the top of your head toward the ground, belly reaching to thighs, and let your hands dangle down to your toes.

Relax your upper body. Try moving your neck around here, exploring how it feels to bend or straighten your knees, acknowledging stiffness or tension in any part of your body.

Stay for a few breaths.
