Snow Day

It is a cold wintery mix of snow, ice, and sleet outside today. Which means a perfect day to practice yoga at home. Stay inside to keep warm, and off the snow covered streets.

Live Light Practice:

Take out your yoga mat or lay on a rug. Begin your home practice with modified sun salutations (take out the chaturanga and updog to start). After 3 modified sun salutes, begin full surya namaskara A (sun salutation a) and try for 6 in a row. Then 3 surya namaskara B.

Move from the flow into restorative yoga. Make sure you have a bolster or pillow for support.

Take 2 minutes in pigeon on both sides with support. Lay onto your back and do a gentle twist with the bolster between your knees. Then move into supta baddha konasana (reclined bound angle) with support under your knees for 2 minutes. Finally head into legs up the wall for 5 minutes.

After your last posture sit up for meditation. Use support under your hips and if you need to lean your back against the wall. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Allow your inhales and exhales to be your focus. When your mind wanders acknowledge it and bring the awareness back to the breath.

Shanti,
