Hi, I'm Kino MacGregor, and today we're going to be taking a look at how to cure dizziness with Yoga. One of the biggest things that happen when you begin your Yoga practice is we must take careful attention to the coordination of the breadth-width movement. Julia will be my model today, we'll take a look at that and Prasarita Padottanasana, a wide legged forward bend. You would start in Samasthiti here, standing posture. Then, on an inhalation, step your feet out to the side, taking a nice, wide stand. Holding your hands to the waist, be very careful to coordinate this motion with an inhalation. Inhale, looking up, lifting the spine, and exhale, being careful to control the movement with a long, slow, steady exhalation, as you fold forward. This help equalizes the pressure inside of the brain. Hands move all the way to the floor, Prasarita Padottanasana A. Inhale again, and use the breath to create length in the spine, and exhale, fold forward. Having the head close to the floor, while the pelvis remains high, will change the balance of fluids within the body. And if you're able to have a long, deep breath through the continuity of the motion. When you fold forward, when you lift your head and when you return back to standing. You'll be able to find a deeper sense of balance that will cure any sort of dizziness you may feel, when you're entering or exiting a posture. After about five breaths here, inhale, lifting the spine, looking up, being careful, that's coordinating with the inhalation. Exhale, taking the hands to the waist. And then, not rushing the movement, inhale all the way back, up to standing. You want to be very careful that you stabilize yourself in the posture. You use the full length of the breath to create space in the spine. If that works for you, you can always try Prasarita Padottanasana B, which is the same posture, holding onto the waist. Again, inhale, lifting the spine, looking up. And you want to really lengthen the inhalation. Exhale, as you fold all the way forward. And B, you keep the hands on the waist. So, this greatly challenges your ability to keep your sense of balance. After five breaths here, you would coordinate the movement with the inhalation, and inhale all the way back up to standing. The crucial lesson is to coordinate inhalation, exhalation with the movement. You've been watching how to cure dizziness with Yoga at Miami Life Center, and I'm Kino MacGregor.
