Soften the knees a little so you can bend easier. Inhale left and exhale left so that you are opening the side body, inhale left and exhale right. Inhale left and exhale right.

About Irmi Presutto (1 Articles)
As a young teenager Irmi's interest was always drawn to the East. In her early twenties she traveled to India and backpacked on her first encounter with yoga. She witnessed a 75 year old Indian man sitting in the lotus pose on the bank of a river as he lifted himself off the ground with his hands, swirled up into the air into a back flip and jumped into the river. This blew her mind. In Irmi's forties found herself not being able to lift a box she decided right there to start exercising. Her late husband introduce her to a yoga program. She soon realized she had to face her weaknesses, stiffness, lack of coordination, shortness of breath, pain and restless mind. After two years of practice she became a yoga teacher and has been teaching ever since. Yoga helped her to overcome a lot of loss in my life, both of my parents passed away as a young child and left her and her younger sister as orphans. Years later her husband died unexpectedly and my life was turned upside down again. Yoga gives Irmi strength, security, sanity and keeps her healthy but most of all, it keeps her connected to her inner nature, her truth. Irmi has since been trained in Hatha Yoga, re-balancing massage, meditation, herbal healing, Ayurveda, and the visual arts. Travels to India, Africa and Europe have expanded her mind and touched her heart. It shows me that behind every personality and belief system live human beings with the same needs, desires and hopes for health, happiness and freedom. Yoga makes it possible for her to connect with people on a human level regardless of nationality, walk of life, gender, race, sexual orientation, body type or age. It is such a joy and honor for her to be able to share these ancient practices of healing with you!
