Yin Yoga for regeneration, Hatha for conscious learning of the Asanas, Bikram, Vinyasa or the Jivamukti class for exhaustion – so numerous the styles of yoga, so beautiful are our photographs!
On June 16th, we are celebrating World Yoga Day by sharing a spectrum of yoga images from our collection. In our portfolio, you will find numerous photos of poses such as warrior, dog, and various breathing exercises. Additionally, we also have a series of photographs that clearly demonstrates the process involved with a yoga flow.
Whether it’s a single image or an instructional photo series, we have a suitable Yoga style for everyone. We are going to take a closer look at a couple of these exercises with you.
As you already know, you should move and stretch during a working day. By doing certain yoga exercises the body gets a healthy balance. If your office doesn’t offer a yoga lesson, you can do these asanas yourself. Finger exercises, called mudras, are yoga for the hands that can be practiced anywhere and inconspicuously. They help to redirect tension. The pyramid loosens the shoulders and spine and opens the chest. To do this, place one foot about 12 inches behind the other and bend the upper part of the body forward, leading the forehead to the knee. Press the palms of your hands together behind your back. Inhale and with a straight back come up again and change sides. You may also try the Hula-Hoop without the hoop. This loosens the hips and back.
Hormone yoga is for anyone who has fluctuations in their hormone balance. With this type of yoga, the exercises aim to stimulate the production of certain hormones and bring them into balance. Fish Pose is used in addition to the typical exercises such as bellows breathing and swivel seat. Fish pose is also used to stimulate the thyroid gland and pituitary gland, which control hormone production. In this pose, you lie on your back with your legs outstretched and closed and your arms under your back. Slide your palms under your buttocks and press your elbows close to your body, lifting your upper body and head as you inhale. The weight should rest on the elbows and forearms. For safety’s sake, you should always speak with your doctor before trying hormone yoga.
