Hi, I'm Jeff, Light in Shining Armor Studio, Tampa Bay's Best of the Bay Yoga Instructor of 2010, and today we're going to do yoga for liver problems. One of the best poses for yoga if you're concerned about liver problems is the spinal twist. We're not going to do the seated spinal twist, we're going to do another version that is easier on the body but you still get the full benefit. We're going to do the reclining or the lying spinal twist. We're going to do the reclining or the lying spinal twist. It's not the seated spinal twist that most people think about with yoga but this one gives you the same benefit and its easy to do in your own home. What we're going to do is we're going to bring our knees to the chest, bring our arms out into a T posture and as you exhale, gently lower the feet or the knees to the right as you turn your head to the left. You'll notice that Nessie has brought her knees to the mat. You don't want to hold the knees up. This is called a spinal twist but why we're doing this for liver problems is because you can see twisting the body puts pressure on the internal organs which releases toxins from the body. You just relax. This is all you're doing. You're breathing with each breath, the shoulders, the arms, the back, the legs relax. Hold the position two to three minutes if it's comfortable and if you need to come out of the position before that by all means, come out of the position. Now we're going to inhale, bring the knees back to the chest, bring the head back to center and always do what you do on one side, you do on the other side. So exhale the knees to the left while gently turning the head to the right. Again, each breath helps relax the body. You're putting pressure on the internal organs on both sides of the body, two to three minutes, inhale, bring the knees back to center, back to the chest, bring the head back to center and as you exhale, gently lower the legs to the mat, bring the hands a little closer to the side of the body and relax. I'm Jeff at Light in Shining Studio, Tampa Bay's Best of the Bay Yoga Instructor of 2010, and that was one posture for yoga for liver problems. Thank you.
