The one easy yoga pose to have you feeling Zen

by

If life’s stresses have managed to get a hold of you and making you feel like a lion trapped in a too-small cage, there’s one simple yoga move you can do at-home to calm the mind and rejuvenate the whole body.

The Forward Fold, also known as Uttanasana, is good for relieving stress, headaches, anxiety, fatigue, mild depression and insomnia. On top of this, it is also “a great pose to bring blood circulating to the head and face, and with regular practice, should have a beautifying effect,” according to Ballet Sculpt founder and yoga teacher Cat Woods.

If you’re still not sold, this little manoeuvre has further health benefits – practicing this pose can help stimulate the liver and kidneys and improve digestion. It is also known to be therapeutic for asthma, sinusitis, high blood pressure, infertility and osteoporosis.

So how does one simple yoga move manage to do all of these things? Dropping your head below your heart calms your brain. By opening the hips, Forward Fold can relieve tension in the neck and shoulders, while the stretch also works to ease the load on the spine, balance the hormonal system, stretch hamstrings, and lengthen the lower back.

As well as having more benefits than you can poke a stick at, Forward Fold requires no equipment and is incredibly easy to perform. “It basically involves standing with feet hip distance apart and folding forward from the hips. The neck is able to extend, and the shoulders flop,” advises Cat.

To do the pose, let the crown of your head hang down to your knees, keep your torso long and press your heels into the floor. For those that are more flexible, keep your legs straight and put the palms of your hands on the floor. To modify the pose, bend your knees without locking them before placing your palms on the ground. Hold the pose for up to one minute.

Have you ever tried the Forward Fold pose? What one yoga move do you do to feel Zen?

  1. Testimony By Debra Tonny. How to get your ex back fast! I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn’t love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children pass through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back, after much begging, but all to no avail. and he confirmed it that he has made his decision, and he never wanted to see me again. So one evening, as I was coming back from work, I met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So I explained everything to him, so he told me that the only way I can get my husband back, is to visit a priest, because it has really worked for him too. So I never believed in spells, but I had no other choice, than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the priest whom he visited. awesomespelltemple@gmail.com. So the next morning, I sent a mail to the address he gave to me, and the priest assured me that I will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed, so he spoke with me, and told me everything that I needed to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn’t call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, by the help of a priest. So, i will advise you out there if you have any problem contact DR.DAVID, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you..

  5. I feel so blessed again in my marriage after PRIEST OSAS brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 months. ANNY ROBERT by name from California. Even though I have mouths all over my body, it won’t be enough to thank PRIEST OSAS for his help in my life. My husband separated with me for 3 months and has been in pain and agony without him. So, I searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until I meant PRIEST OSAS who I contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours so that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when PRIEST OSAS said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months.
