Episode 27: Appreciating and connecting with the floor and breath.

This is a slow flowing class. We pay special attention to the connection to the floor and to the breath in all the poses. Today, practice appreciate for whatever your situation is, good or bad. Without trying to make things “better”, just be present with where you are and allow your body and mind to shift, change, expand, and open to joy (and chattaranga pushups!). The final pose before savasana is supta baddha konasana.

Here a short demonstration on how to set up for this pose with props.

Be sure when you move through chatturanga, the shoulders never drop lower than the elbows. Keep the elbows hugging towards the body and use your belly to help make this pose fun!
