Health & Wellness
For the past year I have been planning and preparing to move my niece from Michigan to live with me and my family in the sunshine state. She is the kind of person you meet and cant help but instantly feel joyful! AKA she rocks! She is highly motivated to be great and this move is best step towards her big bright future.
This weeks yoga pose is the classic Downward facing dog.
It's one of my favorite ways to “check in”.
This pose allows my body to show me where I feel light and on the contrary, where I need to focus. It also lets the mind settle, find peace and connect with the breath. Yoga is really all about how you feel in a set pose and letting the pose work for you. Forget about trying to achieving a perfect looking pose. I want you to practise downward facing dog everyday this week and evaluate your state while finding a connection with your body and mind. Interested in the benefits?
Need a Tuesday morning post holiday boost?
Hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!
Jumping back into the work week after a long weekend can be a little rough so lets boost up our energy by practising the full wheel back bend.
Let me fill you in on the benefits of full wheel:
¤ Stretches lungs and chest
¤ Stimulates thyroid and pituitary
¤ Strengthens wrists, arms, legs, buttocks, abdomen and spine
¤ Therapeutic for asthma, infertility, osteoporosis and back pain
¤ Increases energy and counteracts depression
This is such a fun yoga pose for the whole family! As always, I encourage you to make time every day this week and practise full wheel back bend. Five minutes a day can do wonders for our body and mind!
