Lazy yoga is a combination of static or rhythmic application of pressure on energy channels (Sen lines) with passive body stretching, which helps to restore the flow of vital energy, releases blockages, harmonizes metabolism and balances the four elements (earth, water, fire and air).
A lazy yoga session is performed on the floor on a futon/mattress. It is practiced with forearms and hands while legs are used to mark the boundaries of the patient. The technique includes stretching and application of pressure with fingers, hands, elbows, knees, and feet.
Although it has a Hindu, Chinese and South-Asia influence, lazy yoga is based on Thai traditional massage and Ayur yoga of the Kusum Modak disciplines.
