To ensure that each of us can easily integrate the asanas into his daily life. This is the goal of Lorenza Minola (pictured), multi-certified yoga teacher and founder of LoYoga App. To reach it, we need to take care of the messages that the body sends us: “Theasana (position) is one instrument, not an end. It is the asana that suits us and not the other way around. We respect the body and do not pretend to get to the positions immediately advanced. The small attentions that I will give in the description of the asanas will also allow you to face classes challenging without getting hurt and without thinking that yoga is not for us. We will create a space of awareness: practice will help us learn to be in the body, in the breath, in the present. There is nothing better to manage the anxiety that everyday life creates than to stay anchored to here and now»Says Minola.

Here are some positions to do at the time of sunset, useful for the immune system, to re-energize and relax after a long day of Work.

Adho Mukha Svanasana: the upside down dog

This position is fundamental to compensate for movements in opening of the other asanas of the mini practice. You can do it before and after each of the two positions. This asana works on the thymus, a fundamental gland of the immune system. When you do it make sure that your hands and feet are parallel and well rooted a earth. The goal is to open chest well and stretch your back so if you struggle to keep your legs straight enough fold them a bit, the important thing is that the column is nice flat. She tries to push her chest towards the ground. Keep your neck softturn your gaze to the navel.

Urdvha Mukha Svanasana: the upside-down dog

This heart opening asana also stimulates the thymus. It also gives flexibility to the back and massages it abdominal organs. But if practiced incorrectly, it can lead to severe pain in the lumbar and / or cervical area. So here are the attentions: do not wear it gaze to the sky but keep your head straight and the frontal gaze. Tighten the buttocks and be strong on the arms so as not to “weigh” too much on the lower back. Keep the knees raised so as not to arch the back too much (the asana of cobra will come over time).

Ushtrasana: the position of the camel

Another key position to work on fourth chakra and the opening of the heart. Anahata Chakrais the center of trust, oflove, compassion and respect. While on the physical plane it makes our immune system stronger. As in the upside-down dog (and in the cobra, the most advanced asana), it is essential to keep the buttocks contracted in order to protect the lumbar spine, abandon the head backwards only if you do not suffer from cervical pain, always move from sideboth to go to assume the position and to return with the bust erect. This again in order not to put too much strain on the lower back.
