Welcome to day 18 of our 30 days of yoga! I am so glad you’re here.
Little daily inspirations intended to help support you during this time of so many unknowns, and our need for social distancing.
Today we send our prayers and thoughts out to everyone at Country Haven, for those we’ve lost, for all the families affected, and for all the workers who show up everyday despite the present circumstances. I know my heart is with each of you right now.
Taking time to connect with such immense gratitude for all of our front line workers, providing us with essential care and essential services during this time.
As we begin to invite movement into our bodies today, we’ll be exploring a forward fold posture, to help flush your abdominal organs and stretch and lengthen your spine. This is a great posture to do every couple of hours – it helps to support the integrity of your nervous system, releasing restriction along the spine and creating space through the spinal canal. Slowly moving into some movement to help release and open through your intercostals and your rib cage, allow a little more depth into your breath.
I encourage you to spend as much time as feels good for you exploring these movements and postures. Perhaps sitting in silence for a while after our time together, simply noticing your breath, softening around your heart, inviting in compassion. Reflect on where you are now, and where you see yourself as we move through this time.
“Do you really want to look back on your life and see how wonderful it could have been had you not been afraid to live it?
You are so very loved, and my heart is with you.
