YOGA FOR REJUVENATION
A number of asanas are found to be very helpful for vitality and rejuvenation. The asanas are specialized in the brain and spinal rejuvenation since this produces the maximum body and mind rejuvenation. These will produce a healthy central nervous system, healthy glands, healthy internal organs, healthy joints and healthy skin.
If you suffer from high blood pressure, dizziness or serious eye problems, you should not do the inverted postures until these conditions approve. A small proportion of people feel worse for up to two weeks after starting the asanas. This is because the yoga asanas cause die body to eliminate toxins. After this, you will start to feel much better.
The best time to do the asanas, once initial soreness is overcome, is in the early morning or in the early evening before the evening meal. Never exercise on the full stomach. Wait at least three hours after eating the main meal, about one-half hour after eating a light snack and about half an hour after drinking juices.
- The Spinal Roll or Rocking Exercise
This is an excellent exercise to overcome the drowsiness and stiffness that one feels on waking in the morning. It will limber up your spine and keep it in a flexible and youthful condition. It will also help you to sleep soundly.
- Sit down at the end of the exercise pad to make sure that your back will not hit the hard floor. Draw up your knees, and bend your head down. Put your hands under your knees.
- Keeping your spine rounded, gently swing back and forth, imitating the swinging motion of a rocking chair. Don’t straighten your spine as you will roll backwards or you will find yourself lying flat on your back.
- Do this exercise four to six times, then lie down to relax until breath returns to normal again.
- The Shoulder Stand (Sarvangasana)
This asana is sometimes called a “candle” because the body is kept straight as a candle in this posture.
- Lie flat on your back. Inhale deeply while raising your legs and spine until the toes point to the ceiling.
- The body rests on the shoulders and back of the neck. The body is supported by the hands, which are placed in the centre of the spine between the waist and the shoulder blades. Keep your spine and legs straight.
- Breathe slowly and deeply with the abdomen and concentrate on the thyroid gland.
- To come out of this posture just bend your knees, curve your back and slowly return to lying on the floor while exhaling.
- The Fish Posture (Matsyasana)
- Lie on your back with your knees bent and arms at your side.
- Arch on your back as much as you can while raising it off the ground by pushing the floor with your elbows. At the same time, throw your head backwards, resting the crown of your head on the floor. Use your forearm and elbows to support you.
- Expand your chest. Breathe deeply through the abdomen and concentrate on the thyroid gland.
- Stay in this position for about one minute.
- The Reverse Posture (Viparitakarani Mudra)
According to yoga, within the human body, “The sun dwells at the root of the naval and the moon at the root of the palate”. In the reverse posture, the position is reversed and the sun is raised above the moon.
- Lie on your back. Raise your legs and back, supporting your body by placing your hands on your hips. Make sure your legs are vertical and your toes pointed.
Close your eyes. Breathe slowly and deeply from the abdomen and concentrate on the gonads. In the male, these are in testis, and in the female in the ovaries. Stay in this position for about two minutes.
