This pose is for anyone
who wants to learn
how to use yoga to help yourself.
I practice this pose so many times
throughout the day
that it's become a part of my being.
Lifting my heart,
lifting my spirits,
strengthening & stabilizing
my low back & upper back
and then some.
This is my favorite pose.
If practicing in a chair and
your feet don't reach the floor-
use a prop to bring the floor up
to meet your feet.
You can use a block,
taped up phonebooks
(no slip n slide needed here),
or even a bolster to bring the floor to you.
Be able to plant both feet on "the floor".
You don't need to stand on them.
Practice it for 10 minutes one day.
Make it a game.
See how often you can "lift your heart"
and add yoga breath.
It becomes addictive-
Helping Yourself is Empowering.
Rock Your Practice!
Lemme know how it goes...
