Hatha Yoga Practices
This practice is intended to be a slow and grounding invitation to reconnect with your body and your breath. You may experience many benefits from your yoga practice. You might sleep better at night, feel stronger or more flexible, or find that you navigate change better. But at it’s core, yoga is an invitation to slow down and create space to discover your true Self. I hope this practice helps you to do just that.
This practice is all about awareness. Feeling the sensation of your body being supported by the ground below you. Noticing what the breath feels like in your body. Bringing the breath and body together through movement. And, observing the effects of the practice on your mind, body, and breath.
In this practice, we explored a wide-leg seat as an alternative to downward dog. In it, we work on both hip flexion and supporting the spine with our core. As the thumbnail suggests, we also experimented with chair pose as an opportunity to find the leg and core work of downward-facing dog without having to bear weight on our arms.
