Take it to the Mat: Open Your Heart
Let’s be open up our minds, our eyes, our ears, and our hearts with a beautiful backbend that truly allows for a deeper connection to our yang body. The part of our body that allows for fluidity and motion: the external body.Join us on an adventure to MyYogaOnline with an article on Ustrasana (Camel Pose).
When learning a new pose, we pause and ask permission of our entire being to cultivate greater awareness of the mind-body relationship.
Reflection: How much give is there in this relationship (Do I have healthy boundaries)? How much do I want to give in this relationship (Am I open to this, or burnt out from too much soul-diving)? When practicing Ustrasana, am I guided more by my body? My mind? And most importantly, Off the mat, how can I live a more heart-led life?
Today, we’ll take all of this into consideration, as we release tension leading from our heart, connecting to the upper body while strengthening the front of the hips and legs. Enjoy this new pose – and for our parents, encourage little beings to find out what Camel means to them!
