🏵️Welcome to Day 2 of #AyurvedaYogaAndYou
I’m sharing with you the transition of #halasana to #karnapidasana (OR #pavanamuktasana )
Firey dosha of Pitta, (with a hint of Water), are the Do-ers! Always pushing too hard and tend to get inclined to an intensely stimulating practice. You see, that’s when the fire in them is on high flame (Imbalance), leaving them exhausted, physically worn out, or on an adrenaline rush.
🔶If you’re guilty of being the “achiever”, even in Yoga practice, and often irritable when not being able to do certain asanas, you can put your hand up, my Pitta friend. 🖐️
🔶Here, I’ve chosen these Supine Inversions as they can have a great cooling & relaxing effect, reversing flow of energy to return to the heart centre- calms the nervous system.
🔸Approach: Move into it without trying to “achieve” the pose, just to be in it. Completely surrender, no strain.
🔸Breath & Awareness: Keep the breath soft & relaxed, with awareness on breathing & heart rate, feel the nervous system relax. Eyes can be closed.
🔸Duration: As a Pitta dominant, you can be in it for a good 3-5 mins.
🔸Benefits: All 3 poses help in countering high Pitta. It helps to reduce gastric ulcers, acidity, easing hypertension, stimulating the thyroid, neutralizes the heart rate. Nourishes the brain cells, that help cope with anger & aggression. These poses lock us in a “Self-Hug” which is great to soothe the Solar Plexus (seat of Pitta), the abdominal organs which get disturbed with ⬆️ Pitta. 🔸It has great effects on Vata type as well. Good for Kapha too, but less stimulating, so can be held for a shorter duration
