Learn From The Animals
Gary & I love to watch animals. We learn so much from them. When was the last time you noticed the habits of your own pet? Or a swan swimming on a local pond? Just by studying and imitating them as they are fully PRESENT all of the time, can help us to be more in touch with our own bodies.
Can you match the animal to the Yoga pose?
Lizard Pose is a great stretch for the hip flexors, the hamstring and the quadriceps. Incorporating lizard into your yoga practice can help to improve the flexibility of your hip ligaments and strengthen the muscles in your legs.
Butterfly Pose This seated pose strengthens and opens the hips and groin while easing abdominal discomfort.
Downward Dog is named after the way dogs naturally stretch their bodies. The downward dog is a low to the ground bow in which the hind end is raised high in the air and the forearms and chest are pushed to the floor - an upside-down v. When a dog does this it's often accompanied by yawns, tail wagging, and additional stretches, all anticipatory for exciting playtime. The pose is energizing & rejuvenating, deeply stretching your upper chest, shoulders, Achilles tendon, calves, arches, hands & spine while building strength in your arms, shoulders and legs. This mild 1/2 inversion can relieve headaches, insomnia, fatigue & mild depression.
Camel Pose This backbend is named after the Camel because it makes your body resemble a camel hump. Also
it resembles the way a Camel bends it's knees and folds it's legs beneath it's body to sit.The pose strengthens and builds flexibility in the back and opens the front of the body - the abdomen, chest and throat.
