The best way to avoid getting sick is to up your immune function. Living in solitude and fear degrades our immunity. Eat dark leafy greens, laugh with your loved ones and do these 3 yoga moves daily for an immune boost. – Sit well and bring one hand to your heart, one hand out like you are waltzing. Start to pump your breath out in kapalabhati (short sharp exhales through the nose. Don’t you worry about that inhale it’s automatic) As you pump your breath, switch hands and tap your chest, the seat of your thymus gland. This will stimulate your immune response. Practice for 1-2 minutes. – Wrap your left arm over and around your right as many times as you can into an eagle wrap. Turn your chin and fit it over your left shoulder. Lift your elbows high and swallow a few times as you breath deeply. This will flush the thyroid gland at the base of your neck. Repeat with right elbow on top and head over right shoulder. – Grab for opposing elbow, cupping the tip of the elbow into the center of the palm. Place forearms into the pit of the belly as you fold over your legs into a child’s pose. Breath deeply into the back body for 1-2 minutes. This will help detoxify your intestines and gut. – – – – – – #yoga #yogateacher #fitness #yogainspiration #homepractice #yogalife #loveyoga #mindfullness #wellness #health #fitness #fitnessmotivation #wellness #selfcare #workout #healing #yogapractice #flexibility #zoomyoga #zoomfitness #onlineyoga #katonahyoga #vinyasayoga #selfpractice

Move One: Sit well and bring one hand to your heart, one hand out like you are waltzing. Start to pump your breath out in kapalabhati—short, sharp exhales through the nose. Don’t worry about the inhale; it’s automatic. As you pump your breath, switch hands and tap your chest, the seat of your thymus gland. This will stimulate your immune response. Practice for 1-2 minutes.

Move Two: Bring your left arm over and around your right arm as many times as you can into an eagle wrap. Turn your chin and fit it over your left shoulder. Lift your elbows high and swallow a few times as you breathe deeply. This will flush the thyroid gland at the base of your neck. Repeat with the right elbow on top and head over the right shoulder.

Move Three: Grab your opposing elbow, cupping the tip of the elbow into the center of the palm. Place forearms into the pit of the belly as you fold over your legs into a child’s pose. Breath deeply into the back body for 1-2 minutes.
