Are you still with me? Good. Because when you choose to rid of toxins stuck deep within, you will pulsate with brightness & everyone will feel your light.More energy and happiness will be part of your life. So, help everyone sparkle this Spring and try these 3 Easy Yoga Steps:
Let Go Think of one thing that is no longer serving your higher purpose. A negative thought?
A friendship fueled by gossip? An energy draining habit? Come down onto the floor and separate your knees wide and point your toes towards each other. Sit back towards your heals & fold forward. Rest your forehead on the floor or a pillow. (Child’s Pose Version 1) or (Child’s Pose Version 2): Sit on the floor and hug your knees toward your chest and drop your head towards your knees. As you inhale say the word “let” and with each exhale say “go”. Stay in pose for 10 slow breathsTwist away the Old. Targeted yoga poses work at the organ level to rid of stagnant energy & lingering undigested food. Your liver, kidneys, intestines, and stomach are all powerful organs for cleansing and as you twist; they will get a much deserved massage to help energy flow smoother, (Twist Version 1, above), or Twist Version 2: Lay on floor and hug knees to your chest. Next, drop both knees to one side. Place arms out in a T shape. Stay in pose for 3-5 breaths. Switch sides.Breathe in Light. Sit in a comfortable position (floor or chair). Rest hands in lap. Close your eyes and notice your breath. Inhale slowly 4 counts. Feel the air rise up from your belly and rest under your collar bones. Hold breath 2 counts. Slowly exhale the breath out 6 counts. Each time you inhale feel yourself drawing in clean energy from the earth and each time you exhale return old energy to the ground. Feel light all around you and SPARKLE into Spring.
