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

Naptime

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We can learn something from how our pets take care of themselves. My little puppy Cosmo knows how to take care of herself. She rests when she needs to and runs around when she wants. When I saw her napping so happily today I had to sneak a photo.

Live Light Practice:

Take a nap today. Set aside 20 minutes to yourself where you can lay on the couch and close your eyes. Even if you don’t fall asleep your body and mind will have time to restore.

New Live Light Thought Pattern

I listen to the inner wisdom of my body.

New Perspective

Tomorrow begins a new month, and the opportunity for a new perspective. The New Year is behind us and old habits can sneak in. Take this weekend to relax and remind  yourself of what you are grateful for this year.

If you are feeling stuck maybe it is time to find a new perspective. This weekend, to see things in a new way I’ll be taking an inversion workshop.

Live Light Practice:

Turn upside down. Try a forward fold, downward dog, or a handstand. See if you can hold the posture for at least one minute. Move slowly in and out so you can watch any shifts in perspective that occur.

Much love and peace,

Liza
