Release strain in buttock and hip joint and cool down
This illustration is inspired by Julio Dieguez Papi.
B.K.S. Iyengar`s sequence to release strain in buttock and hip joint + sequence to cool down the body in warm climate, from the book «Yoga for Sports».
1st 7 poses from the first sequence, where Adho Mukha Svanasana and Adho Mukha Virasana are also part of the sequence 2 for warm climate.
Julio found this combination very useful after hard athletic training based on HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).
The sequence from Guruji, and the bandage on the head, aim to decrease the activity of the neural system, calm the mind, and cool down the brain activity.
Frontal lobe is very much active during the day. Stress and worries may hyperactivate it even more. The forehead is warm, the eyes are tense and thoughts pop up incessantly.
Knowing that, using these poses with the proper intention, may solve lot of problems, release muscle skeletal apparatus, lower down temperature, help to remove lactate and calm the mind.
