Oh WOW we’re at DAy 4!-CAMEL POSE

IMG_3512Good Morning beautiful yogis!

Todays Challenge is about opening your heart to others. ” Random Acts of Kindness”

It can be as small as paying someone you don’t know a compliment or paying for a meal for the person behind you in the drive through.  These little gestures cause a ripple effect.

Sharing is caring ya’ll!!! GOOD VIBES GOOD VIBES…..

I was inspired by a fellow yogi that taught a Slow Burn Yoga Class last night , Slow Burn Yoga is practiced with eyes are closed or soft letting our other senses guide us through the flow of poses instead of just putting our body into the pose. Allowing each breath that fills your body communicate with you at a higher level.  There’s definitely something magical about it!  Youv’e just got to try it for yourself!!  ASK ME HOW!!!

CAMEL POSE- Ustrasana

IMG_0030.JPGIMG_0032IMG_0033.JPGIMG_0027Benefits– stretching the abdomen, spine, neck, opening shoulders , and strengthens the back.

Contraindications– Please use caution if you’ve had back injuries, strains, or pains. This can be a more advanced  back bend for some. There are many ways you can adjust for it to fit your needs, but IF THERE IS PAIN, IT’S SIMPLE….DON’T GO THERE!!

HOW TO:

START by kneeling on your shins, knees are hip width apart, the tops of your feet are flat on the mat ( you can put an extra cushion under the knees for more support)

  1. Inhale lift both arms to the sky fill with your breath and reach back with one arm towards the same side heal, if this feels good for you continue with the other side.
  2. Keep pushing your hips forward….. letting go of your neck and have your head drop back with ease (GAZE BACK AND ENJOY THE PERSPECTIVE OR IF YOUR EYES ARE CLOSED GAZE WITH YOUR HEART) as you breathe 5 good full breaths…..
  3. Coming out of the pose rise with one arm up at a time.
  4. *Counterpose- Childs pose- Place both hands at the front of your mat and sit back your hips onto your heals with your big toes coming to touch.

MAY YOUR DAY BE FILLED WITH LOVE AND INSPIRATION SO YOU MAY SHARE IT WITH ALL THAT IS AROUND YOU!

NAMASTE!
