Claudia and Hermann have put together two sequences which aim to support and boost your immune system.

The main focus of the sequences are forward extensions with head support, supported backward extensions as well as inversions. Aside from the stimulation of the Nervous and Lymphatic System, these Asanas support our Respiratory and Circulatory System.
The duration should be adapted according to the practicioners‘ level of practice (between 3 – 10 Min. per Asana).  
We show you two different variations of each Asana.

Iyengar Yoga for the respiratory System – Lois Steinberg, Ph.D.

Reading recommendation: Iyengar Yoga for the Respiratory System by Lois Steinberg.

The article provides you with a series of modified yoga postures that support the health of the respiratory tract. In the description of the individual postures of the sequence, Lois emphasizes that the lungs should be aligned so that not only the front side but also the back of the lungs can be optimally ventilated. Each posture, including the use of props, is described and illustrated in detail. In addition, the specific physiological effect of the postures on the respiratory tract and lungs is explained. Due to the generous use of props, the illustrations and the set-ups are particularly aimed at Iyengar Yoga teachers with the appropriate equipment. The article is also aimed at advanced Iyengar Yoga practitioners or Iyengar Yoga practitioners who already are familiar with other publications by Lois Steinberg. The individual postures can be practiced in a slightly modified way with a significantly reduced use of props. Lois also gives examples for the reduced use of props in the descriptions.
