Hi, I'm CarolAnn with, and I'm going to show you yoga poses for the spleen and kidneys. So, what you want to do is come on down on the floor, lie down on your back and we're going to do what we call Dead Bug, but I kind of like to call it a Dying Bug, because there's somewhat of some movement involved with this. So, this is really great for the spleen and the kidneys. So, come on down in a tabletop position meaning your knees are directly over your hips and they're at 90 degrees. Then you have your arms straight up in the air, you're anchoring your shoulders into the floor, and your naval is pulled in towards your spine. So, what we're going to do is we're going to alternate. We're going to extend the right leg out and the left leg out, but you do not want to move your right arm or your left leg. So, keep them stabilized. So, you're holding, you're really working from the core here, and then bring it back up as you hold for a couple of breaths and the extend out the other arm and leg. So remember, it's opposite arm, opposite leg. Now, what you don't want, you don't want your lower back to pop up. Pull it down, use your abdominal muscles and bring it in. So, you can actually hold this pose for five breaths and then bring it back up and switch, or you can just continue to move fluidly. It's up to you. It's your time. So, that is Dead Bug. Next, we're going to move into knee drops. So, the arms are anchored on to the floor, place your feet and your knees together in 90 degrees. So, what we're going to do is we're going to drop those knees down to the side but don't touch your knees to the floor, pull those knees back to the center before your knees hit the floor. So, we inhale, when we lower down, exhale, pull those knees back to the center and inhale as you lower, exhale as you lift. And you can perform about ten reps, five on each side and when you've completed that, just simply place your feet on the floor, bring your arms down and rest. And those are your yoga poses for the spleen and kidneys. I'm CarolAnn for
