february is over. wow. 28 days really are short.
one. lion pose. simhasana.
i forgot to roll my eyes. and this pose is the absolute weirdest pose on earth.
relieves tension in the chest and face
stimulates the platysma, a flat, thin, rectangular-shaped muscle on the front of the throat
helps keep the platysma firm as we age
according to traditional texts, simhasana destroys disease and facilitates the three major bandhas (Mula, Jalandhara, Uddiyana)
two. wide squat twist.
three. lotus pose. padmasana.
calms the brain
stimulates the pelvis, spine, abdomen, and bladder
stretches the ankles and knees
eases menstrual discomfort and sciatica
consistent practice of this pose until late into pregnancy is said to help ease childbirth
traditional texts say that padmasana destroys all disease and awakens kundalini
