Here is a look back at the restorative poses I’ve offered for you to practice at home or during your travels in 2018. Reacquaint yourself and continue these in your practice. I’ll be back in 2019 with more poses to add to your tool belt. Namaste!
When we start to feel that we are taking care of ourselves and as we go deeper in our practice and land in trust, we will eliminate all that is no longer useful to us and find peace. Through the practice of letting go and letting be we can re-write our story.
As with all restorative poses, our aim is to feel grounded enough to fully relax and release tension. I invite you to practice the pose of the month for 10 minutes / day (use a timer). Even per week is fine. While restorative poses look easy, that doesn't mean they are. It can be difficult to really relax and remain silent with your breath! Thoughts aren't so easy to let go of. Judgments may enter wondering what the point of this is. If you find yourself having difficulty, start with 5 minutes and slowly allow yourself relaxation. Conscious relaxation. The need to strive and drive keeps us in flight or fight. We need deep relaxation to reverse the damage on our nervous systems.
