Starting with 10 minutes of breath meditation (Anapana) incorporating hand mudras, setting a positive intention for the mind and body. Moving onto Sheetali or Sheetkari (cooling breath) – lowers BP, cools the body down & eliminates toxins, fights insomnia, calms the mind, destresses, helps with anxiety & anger.
Starting with gentle subtle exercises from the Pawanmuktasana Series (3 distinct groups) – 1. Anti-Rheumatic, 2. Digestive/abdominal, 3. Shakti Bandha Asanas (energy block postures). In Sanskrit Pawan means wind; mukta means release and Asana means pose. Therefore Pawanmuktasana means a group of Asanas that remove any blockages preventing the free flow of energy in the body and mind. Leading us onto a group of restorative Asanas for the whole body.
Finishing with Kapalbhati Pranayame (forehead shining breathing technique) – Improves oxygenation to the body; rids the body of toxins; strengthens the nervous system; rejuvenates the brain improving memory and concentration; keeps depression at bay & fills you with positivity.
Savasana – Relaxation.
