Bikram Yoga: Lesson 2 (the rabbit pose)


The rabbit, or the sasangasana, is an inverted yoga pose that provides excellent traction on your back, shoulders and upper extremities. As you turn your body in an inward position, your back will have a good stretch followed by elongation of your spine. With the spine properly lengthened, the circulation of your blood will improve, allowing your nervous system to receive its proper nutrition.The placement of your upper torso helps relieve pressure from your back and shoulders all the way up to your neck and head. It also balances your hormones, stimulates your thyroid gland and improves your immune capacity. For people suffering from sinusitis, colds or congestion, tonsillitis, laryngitis, upper airway allergies and glandular problems, this position is the best way to find relief.

I unfortunately, have big boobs, unlike the girl in the photo so they completely get in the way.  I end up squeezing to my chest as much as I can, but end up suffocating in my cleavage.  LOL!   There’s nothing you can do at this point, but try your best.
