Hi beautiful people!


I am so glad you are taking the time to become the best version of yourself.


Today I would like to propose to introduce a 5 minutes yoga practice into your daily routine.

5 minutes is something we can easily incorporate to our busy days. So NO EXCUSES.


Maybe you are thinking right now : really? Yoga to detox?


Let me tell you, detox it is not only about what you eat or drink, exercise actually helps your body to detoxify itself. Exercise is an important part of any detoxification program. Moving the body creates the conditions for the body to breathe, stretch, circulate and sweat.

Almost all of us sleep in a closed room for a minimum of 6 hours a day.


This causes 3 things:

  • Poor oxygenation (because the room is loaded with carbon dioxide)

  • muscle seizure (due to the immobility of night rest) and

  • deactivation of the digestive system and slight dehydration (because we have not eaten or drank nothing all night).

Well, by now it is clear that we must solve this, but how? First, we need to oxygenate, to activate the muscles (especially the back, which is the one that suffers most) and to hydrate your body ( drink water).

Yoga combine both: the breathing and the move, you will feel the diference in you body after the practice.


SUN SALUDATION BASIC FOR BEGINNERS




Star by standing tall in mountain pose "tandasana" (Figure 1)





Inhale ,arms up , palms together , look up





On the exhale,bend forward bringing the chest in the direccion of your tights





On the inhalation look in front of you





On the exhale step back into plank.





On the inhale lift the chest up and exhale into downwards facing dog (Take 5 deep breaths in this position)




Look between your hands, step forward to your hands and inhale





Hands in front of your hart ,exhale





Repeat steps 1 to 8 five times, and go with the flow:



Don't forget, like almost everything in life, the key to success is in the routines. It is easy for us to start practicing, but the success lies in the acquisition of easy-to-follow routines. It is better little work continued over time, than long sessions with little continuity. Give it a try and keep trying!
