After skipping a week for the first time since beginning this blog, I admit I feel slightly freer. Not guilty like I thought I would. But happy that I can drive this caravan when and where I’d like to. Within limits – I don’t want to get stuck in the desert from whence I may never return. What I’m trying to say is it feels good to honor myself and make the choice to do what brings me joy.
Accordingly, this week we will lead with our hearts as we return to our Monday challenge. Through the anahata chakra we will energize our love of self and others by opening our hearts and letting our brilliance shine.
Here are some heart-warming poses to ignite your flame. Begin today’s practice with the first pose and add-on a new pose from the list each day. That way by Saturday you are doing the whole group of postures.
- Bhujanasana (Cobra) or Sphinx
- Supported Matsyasana (Fish)
- Virahbadrasana I (Warrior I)
- Parsvottanasana (Pyramid)
- Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge)
- Ustrasana (Camel) – put blocks or a chair behind you for support.
As always, use your judgement and proceed within your comfort zone.
