Yoga Asanas

Yoga Poses

Yoga poses or ‘asana’ allow you to know your body in that moment helping us to refine our attention inward.

Parivritta Parsvakonasana (Revolved Side Angle)

Revolved Side Angle offers many variations with the back knee coming down to the mat, lifting the chest as you turn while creating palm to palm pressure to gently increase the twist in your body. What I love about this pose is the contrast of strength in the legs with the lightness of the twist.

Salamba Sirsasana (Supported Head Stand)

Headstand (Salamba Sirsasana) Defying gravity this inversion stimulates blood flow, reduces swelling in lower extremities, calming the entire body into a trance. Wonderful after a day on your feet or simply to energise. Keep in mind inversions are not recommended for women in their dark moon phase.

Virabhadrasana I (Warrior 1)

Warrior 1 (Virabhadrasana1) This pose is great for balance, hip opening and awareness of spinal alignment. When you take the breath into the back of the body in Warrior 1, you completely change the feel of this calming yet empowering asana.

Matsyasana (Fish Pose)

Fish (Matsyasana) This pose is known to balance the endocrine system, improving flexibility while calming the nervous system. It’s important you soften the throat and tongue to fully integrate with this asana.
