5 Simple Yoga Poses to Boost Your Immunity and Stay Away from Coronavirus

Coronavirus is the hottest issue around the world and most people are in a panic, obviously.

However, being panic would not do any better for anyone. What you can do now is to stay away from the crowds, take your health really seriously, eat, drink, act, even think healthy and have faith we are able to win at the end.

The strong immune system is so crucial to prevent you from getting any diseases. Today, let ’s practice these yoga asanas to boost your immune system so that we have less chance to be infected by a coronavirus. The combination of Yoga sequence is more important than a single one, keep that in mind.

Pose 1. Start with the Mountain Pose, with an inhale, sweep your arms out to the sides and up toward the ceiling, and eyes on the direction of your fingertips. ( Hint: Chin up to the direction of the ceiling, feel the stretch of the front of your neck, DON'T fold your neck backward)

Pose 2: Turn your left foot slightly to the right and your right foot out to the right 90 degrees. Align the left heel with the right heel. Firm your thighs and turn your left thigh outward so that the center of the left knee cap is in line with the center of the left ankle.

Exhale and bend your right knee over the right ankle, so that the shin is perpendicular to the floor. If possible, bring the right thigh parallel to the floor. Anchor this movement of the right knee by strengthening the left leg and pressing the outer left heel firmly to the floor.

Stay for 15 seconds 5 times of inhaling and exhaling. Inhale to come up. Reverse the feet and repeat for the same length of time to the left.

Pose 3: Sit on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you, buttocks supported on a folded blanket. Bend your knees, put your feet on the floor, then slide your right foot under your left leg to the outside of your left hip. Lay the outside of the right leg on the floor. Step the left foot over the right leg and stand it on the floor outside your right hip. The left knee will point directly up at the ceiling.

Exhale and twist toward the inside of the left thigh. Press the left hand against the floor just behind your left buttock, and set your right upper arm on the outside of your left thigh near the knee. Pull your front torso and inner left thigh snugly together.

Press the inner left foot very actively into the floor, release the left groin, and lengthen the front torso. Lean the upper torso back slightly, against the shoulder blades, and continue to lengthen the tailbone into the floor.

You can turn your head in one of two directions: Continue the twist of the torso by turning it to the left; or counter the twist of the torso by turning it right and looking over the right shoulder at the left foot.

With every inhalation lift a little more through the sternum, pushing the fingers against the floor to help. Twist a little more with every exhalation. Be sure to distribute the twist evenly throughout the entire length of the spine; don't concentrate it in the lower back. Stay for 15 - 30 seconds, then release with an exhalation, return to the starting position, and repeat to the right for the same length of time.

Pose 4: Wide-Angle Seated Forward Bend

Sit on the floor with your legs together and extended in front of your torso, lean your torso back slightly on your hands and lift and open your legs to an angle of about 90 degrees (the legs should form an approximate right angle, with the pubis at the apex). Press your hands against the floor and slide your buttocks forward, widening the legs another 10 to 20 degrees. (If you can not sit comfortably on the floor, raise your buttocks on a folded blanket. It's okay if you can not open your legs to the wide-angle, as long as you feel your legs are comfortably stretched, never push your body to do the position you have not done before. Listen To Your Body!)

With your thigh bones pressed heavily into the floor and your knee caps pointing up at the ceiling, walk your hands forward between your legs. Keep your arms long. As with all forward bends, the emphasis is on moving from the hip joints and maintaining the length of the front torso. As soon as you find yourself bending from the waist, stop, re-establish the length from the pubis to the navel, and continue forward if possible.

Increase the forward bend on each exhalation until you feel a comfortable stretch in the backs of your legs. Stay in the pose 15-30 seconds. Then come up on an inhalation with a long front torso.

Pose 5: Reclining Bound Angle Pose

Lay down on your back at the Yoga matt, bring your torso all the way to the floor, supporting your head and neck on a blanket roll or bolster if needed. Bend your knees, pull your heels toward your pelvis, then drop your knees out to the sides and press the soles of your feet together. Lay your arms on the floor, angled at about 45 degrees from the sides of your torso, palms up. Imagine that your inner groins are sinking into your pelvis. Push your hip points together, so that while the back pelvis widens, the front pelvis narrows.

To start, stay in this pose for one minute. Gradually extend your stay anywhere from five to 10 minutes. To come out, use your hands to press your thighs together, then roll over onto one side and push yourself away from the floor, head trailing the torso. Or you could straighten out the legs and rest a little more.

Confronting the epidemic caused by Coronavirus, people’s attention to health will rise to a higher level. I believe that staying healthy is no longer a person's choice, but it is a sense of responsibility to your family, your surroundings, the society, even the world.
