I haven't gotten in many long and full practices, but I have managed to fit in 20-40 minute ones at least every other day, plus random poses daily that have been calling my name. One pose that has helped over these last 10 days of being away from home, is the one pictured below. Thanks to my awesome friend, Checka, I discovered to combine Eagle Pose arms with Wide-legged standing forward fold! Ooh, it's fantastic to de-stress all over the body. My new favorite of the moment. Try it today and tomorrow to freshen up your system as we cross over into a brand new year. Maybe you'll continue it daily for weeks to come!
Tip: If you have the time, it's nice to start out with a warm-up of sun salutations of your choice, and/or combine this pose into a sequence of lunges or warriors.
|Step out into a grounded, wide-legged stance where you can press evenly through all corners of feet and keep legs active/knees slightly bent. Set up Eagle pose arms.|
