Free Guided Yoga classes in your home

Standard

Join me now on my YouTube channel where I offer you, virtual yoga classes. There currently are 3 classes available and one fully guided Relaxation class. I am making these videos firstly for my Purchase College students who are currently Distance Learning due to the Pandemic. However, many of my Yogini and Yogi Friends have asked about the videos and are enjoying them in the comfort of their home. Some people especially appreciate the Guided Relaxation where they can start the video and set themselves on their mat or their bed and experience a restful Savasana or Deep peaceful night sleep. During this unprecedented challenging time many of us are feeling anxious, angry, sad, unsettled about so many unknowns. If we can have a regular Yoga practice this helps us balance our minds, body, energetic patterns and in turn we can find stillness and peace. I hope you may make time to visit the YouTube channel, Yoga with Julie Broglin, or Julie Broglin. Please help me grow the channel and click the bell so you will be notified when the next new Yoga class is available. Please share the Free classes with your Friends and Family who may be missing going to their regular fitness, wellness classes. Know the Guided Relaxation is wonderful for All, even those who never have done Yoga before, even children. I would love to know about your experience with the virtual yoga classes so please leave me your comments on the YouTube channel. Take the best care, stay safe and healthy, Namaste ūüôŹūüŹĹ Julie

I invite you to have a private yoga session on YouTube channel, Julie Broglin, or Yoga with Julie Broglin

The Upside of Hanging upside down—

Standard

Namaste, Are you ready to give yourself a natural easy boost?

Try reversing the pulls of gravity which affect: our circulation, organs (including the skin),bones, spine, virtually all things get affected by gravity. ¬†Think about how many hours each day we ¬†sit and stand, how many hours in a year and then multiply that by how long you have being living to get a sense of the duration of gravity’s affect on all aspects. ¬†When we have time and the season is ripe to be outdoors, look for an inclined grassy area and lie on it, on your back with your head towards the bottom of the incline/hill. ¬†Gravity will work for you, in a smart way, reversing the affects it has such as prolapse for the organs. ¬†Start out slowly perhaps two minutes and increase by one minute each time you practice. ¬†Place your hands on your lower belly and observe your abdominal in and out breath until you find yourself in between the breaths, the still point, the special place of stillness. ¬†If the sun is too bright you may choose to lie on your belly side also being aware of the breathing rhythm. ¬†Do yourself a big favor and locate a shaded spot for this practice. ¬†As time goes on and your remain longer it may be harmful for such a long period of sun exposure, even with sunscreen. ¬†Remind yourself that you are in nature and that the little ants may need to cross over your ankles to get to grandmother ant’s house for dinner. ¬†If you choose to use a bug repellent look for natural ones, like lemongrass and/or neem. ¬†For those who are shy about being in nature, or if the weather is not cooperating you may choose to use a slant board inside or stack up the pillows while lying on the floor so that the hips are up off the floor, let the legs and knees rest on the sofa or chair. ¬†Listen to your favorite relaxing music and breathe. ¬†This is a modified yoga posture (modified from ¬†Viparita Karani -Legs up the wall pose, which is great for all seasons and places. ¬†The only difference is that the interior organs get more benefits when the hips are up for an inversion.). ¬†When practicing for five minutes regularly any pressure on the spine may allow compressed discs between the vertebrae to regenerate. ¬†Blood circulation to the brain is nourished boosting cognitive ¬†abilities. ¬†The organs begin to sigh as pressure there is released and rearranged. ¬†The blood circulation and lymph flow begin to ¬†reorganize and start afresh. ¬†Remember to start for a short time and if you feel dizzy, any unconformability, ringing in the head slowly transition to lying on the back or belly ¬†for several minutes until you feel okay again. ¬†If you start with two minutes that is a safe range and slowly add to the time each time practicing so the body will¬†acclimate gradually and you are not overwhelmed. ¬†After practicing for some time and you are able to stay for twenty minutes or longer then you may reverse your energetic pattern from exhaustion to being fully rejuvenated. ¬†For Yoginis and Yogis that are practicing asanas this simple, supported ¬†and safe modified posture allows for more benefits due to the time able to sustain this posture ¬†becomes longer as opposed to half¬†– should stand. ¬†When able to remain in postures like this for longer times more benefits are received. After you have finished your Upside down pose do lie on your back flat in savasana/relaxation pose for at least seven minutes to let all aspects harmonize. ¬†This would be a great time to log into your journal upon completion or continue onwards in silence for a predetermined amount of time to keep the benefits as long as possible. ¬†Happy Hanging!!!!
