Soothe your brain cells – Relieve depression

Did you know that a simply bending over and staying there for over two minutes can have a big impact on your health?

An easy, forward bend that is not strenuous to your hammys, gets your head below your heart and the results are very beneficial. According to B.K.S. Iyengar, Light On Yoga, “this asana cures stomach pains and tones the liver, the spleen and the kidneys. It also relieves stomach pain during menstrual periods. The heart beats are slowed down and the spinal nerves rejuvenated. Any depression felt in the mind is removed if one holds the pose for two minutes or more. The posture is a boon to people who get excited quickly, as it soothes the brain cells. After finishing the asana, one feels calm and cool, the eyes start to glow and the mind feels at peace.”

The good news is, you do not have to bend like a pretzel to do an easy forward bend. Just lean over with bent legs, rest your forearms on you thighs and let your head dangle. Breathe nice, long breaths and begin receiving these benefits today.

    Do you accept Medicare? That is if my Shell plan with United Healthcare approves my Orthopedic’s Dr’s order.
    I am a 76 yrs female with 3 inoperable herniated discs because of a stubborn UTI that does not adequately respond to the traditional antibiotic treatments says Urologist.
    I want to avoid low back surgery anyway. I have neuropathy in my feet, numbness so that I have poor balance and must walk with a cane. I am told that Restorative Yoga and Chair Yoga would help build strength and balance. I have no history with Yoga. It would be nice if you have Medicare patients but I need this therapy regardless. There are other issues.
    I almost fell in my house last week that is still under construction from the mid-Feb freeze because of the dust that accumulates daily in drywall and tile grinding. I have another 3 weeks or so before I am free from this daily schedule at my home in Copperfield Southdown to be free to possibly join your Chair class if available.
    Please a4dvise how to proceed to join in the next month.
    Warm Regards.
