SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

So, this is an unprecedented time for most of us, unless we are very elderly and have lived through the Spanish flu, we have not listened, witnessed or felt anything of this sort.

ACT NOW!

We in Britain have lived through an age where most of us have not first hand experienced war, and although nightly horrified by the tragedies of conflict, our nearest experience have been the terrifying terrorist attacks or injured or lost loved ones in other lands.

However now is not the time to fall to pieces, now is the time to act! not react.

SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Our immune systems need our support, just as our soldiers need our support abroad.

  1. Smile. Lifting the corners of your mouth and your eyes and breathe deeply through the nose. Even though we may be keeping a measured distance between each other, smiling’s not harmful, keep eye contact when on a device or if outside how about smiling and nodding, or doffing your hat.
  • Keep moving. We need to keep everything active so the lymph can move around the body as it has no pump, so whether you’re following our online classes, or in the garden keep moving, put a timer on to remind you so that you resist constantly engaging with the box.         
  • If you are going to watch something, try to watch mostly funny programs, or at least dance along with STRICTLY.
  • As long as your healthy, no hip or knee problems, try bouncing up and down on the spot, or on a mini trampoline, it again will assist the lymphatic system but also get the endorphins going.
  • You might be home more, so take advantage of having time to cook. A multitude of colours with your veg, or try quinoa or freekah . You’ve got the time maybe to chop up all those healthy herbs. Don’t forget your garlic.
  • If you are still going out for lots of walks in the park or seafront you can still keep your distance, walk upright chest open arms swinging.
  • If walking you could walk to the shops yourself or your elderly neighbour, a few bits at a time, that leaves room for everyone else, and in turn will make you feel like a community giant.
  • If you are already practicing headstands, and its part of your routine, maybe practice three times a day instead.
  • Make sure you practice long exhalations and retentions. Kriyas for those who practice them or you can catch us online
  • As long as your spines up to it, lots of rotations and bridges, cobras and sphynx to open up that ribcage, and keep everything loose.

LET US HELP YOU!
