Vultures Breath is a vigorous breath that removes toxins from the throat and deep in the lungs. Combining the squat with the swift exhalation, this breath also activates and strengthens the diaphragm. Perching Vulture is a challenging arm balance that opens the hip and shoulder joints while strengthening the arms and upper body. As with all balancing postures, Perching Vulture also improves focus and mind/body connection. When students achieve the balance, they feel empowered. Vultures Gaze stimulates the sense of sight and guides students to use both their near and far vision. By stilling the mind, students can focus on an external object, which will result in a controlled nervous system and improved brain activity.
