Best Practices No. 2

Supta Baddha Konasana

Yoga Sequence for Boosting the Immune System

Yoga practitioners are human and subject to illness, despite following the most conscientious lifestyle. So when in recovery from any nasties, this practice based on one of B.K.S. Iyengar’s sequences is an invaluable practice. It begins in a “user-friendly way” with:

Setubandha Sarvangasana, lying over bolsters (5-10 Min.)

Supta Baddha Konasana, bolster, blanket, strap, blocks under knees, (5 Min.)

Supta Virasana, bolster, blanket (3-5 Min.)

Repeat Setubandha Sarvangasana (5 Min.)

Adho Mukha Svanasana, hands supported on blocks, head supported (2 Min.)

Sirsasana (5 Min.)

Viparita Dandasana, lying over a chair, feet on second chair, and head supported on bolsters or blocks

Sarvangasana, supported on chair (5 Min.)

Halasana, supported (5 Min.)

Setubandhasana Sarvagasana, on bench, shoulders & head supported on bolster & blanket (5 min.)
