Live Light Practice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Start your day with a new perspective.

Go upside down in a forward fold, down-dog, or handstand.

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,

Liza

Turned Upside Down

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inversions are healthy, great fun, and offer a new perspective on life. When is the last time you turned your life upside down and looked at things in a new way?

Sometimes it can be helpful to take a step back from things or even turn them upside down to fully understand them.

Shanti,

Liza
