Hi pals, it is Assistant Professor Phod, here to share some yoga tips.
Savasana, also known as final relaxation or the corpse pose, is very important. It can calm the nervous system and help the digestive and immune systems. It can reduce stress (which is really important during this crazy time). It can lower blood pressures, it is good for your health.
After assisting my Lady with her yoga practice as well as developing my own, I have a few variations I find to be very relaxing and beneficial.
I call this one - cool body, warm head, easy to supervise Lady if need be.
I call this one out for the count.
oooh we love that pawsitions... da nelly preferes da squawking frog pawsition the most while I prefer the go away pesky human contortion ...specially when that pesky human is our dad..ReplyDelete
OMD, Phod, my angel Jade used love her Doga... and you have shown me two pawsitions that she never accomplished! Hoorah for that. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
You do look pretty zoned out, Phod. Mom sometimes does savasana after she climbs into bed at night to help her get to sleep. It works!ReplyDelete
OMD, those are some advanced techniques!ReplyDelete
I had a big boy love to do your first one but I have a rug by the front door and tile for my body. It's one of my favorite yoga positions. These days my favorite position is the one that mama calls dead dog where I lay on my side and put all four legs straight out and my head straight out and I lay really still and I don't move. I also have one where I scrunch my body in between the sofa and the ottoman in a little tiny space that's really too smallReplyDelete
You are doing a great job helping your Lady, Phod. We can often be found in the "out for the count" pose.ReplyDelete
That last pose looks like a totally loved doggie pose. Secure , happy, loved and relaxed.ReplyDelete
Dilly says that dogs invented yoga.ReplyDelete
I go for the legs in the air 'Upside Down Dog' pose.ReplyDelete
Gail says that lady has a cool yoga mat.
My favorite pose is any with you in it Prof. PhodReplyDelete
Tell Lady well done on the new 'do'!
Very well done, Phod. We think Timber is working on one where he keeps trying to disappear:)ReplyDelete
Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber
Looks like you've got the best pose down pat.ReplyDelete
My best chuckle, after a long day at work. Thank you, Professor Phod!ReplyDelete
You're really good at that pose, Phod. My favorite is what I call the "pretzel" pose. ~ErnieReplyDelete
The one don't make my joint crackReplyDelete
You sure are a helpful doggie, Phod! I wonder what the humans would do if they didn't have doggies like us to keep them calm these days?ReplyDelete
Oh, those are FABulous poses Phod! I am sure the Lady really appreciates your help with her yoga! I am partial to the corpse pose, or the "wave them like you just don't care" pose of layin' on your back with your front paws in the aire!ReplyDelete
This Savasana pose will always be my favorite. Mom's too!ReplyDelete
Love and licks,
