Fat Burning Yoga Poses
The Headstand is known as the King of Asanas' and is very beneficial for expansive breathing. It helps strengthen the respiratory system and can ease breathing problems.
The same as the Sirsasana Headstand preparation.
Breathe Easy’ is a flowing sequence designed to open up the chest and lungs and strengthen your respiratory system and help ease breathing problems. It works on opening the heart and chest and the heart chakra which is associated with air as the lungs and thymus gland are in the fourth chakra. Working on this chakra will help you reach a state of expanded awareness as your Kundalini energy rises.
