Anyone ever consider or think of the spine as the core of our being? This is where it all starts. Its functions include movement, coordination, support, protection and control.
Protection of the central nervous system allows it to function optimally via the spinal cord which is housed in the spine and controls the function of every single cell, tissue and organ in the body.
A healthy spine, coupled with a healthy nervous system, is crucial in terms of maintaining whole body health. Any alteration of spinal structure or function may cause irritation of the central nervous system or the outer spinal nerves that are protected as they travel to organs or muscles.
Through correct breathing, this short flow aims to increase flexibility of the spinal cord, strengthen the abdominals, core and lower back muscles, allows the opening of the chest and heart space as well as the release of tense neck and shoulders. The benefits are endless and involve the relieving of arthritis in the spine, expelling of toxins, alleviation of chest congestions and sinus problems, releasing build up of tension and stress from the chest and back. No need of doctors, medicines or quick fixes. All you need is you and your body 🧘♀️ #leeds #spinehealth #hathayoga #corehealth #breathing #yogaforhealth #selfpractice #naturalhealing #bhujangasana #ardhakurmasana #utrasana #sasangasana #pranayama
