Hello lovely being :)
How are you?
Welcome to week 2 of The Morning Ten- your invitation to practice 31 days of yoga (including meditation and mantras)... even if that simply means practising for just 10 minutes a day :)
Within myself I am still feeling very much in a post x-mas cloud! It feels hard to find the time and the motivation to accomplish very much in these days... but it is like that sometimes isn't it?!
Younger versions of me would probably have tried to 'push through it', but this time I am attempting a different strategy- to breathe into it, to practice self-compassion, to take all non-essentials off my plate and ride out this phase knowing that another one will start when the time is right.
It is such a profound thing to be able to accept things as they are and to take many slow deep breaths.
So if you have been keeping up with the challenge so far then well done! And if you have not then that is also just fine :)
Dip into the sessions below if/when you have the time- knowing you are just perfect as you are either way.
See below for this week's links:
Day 1: Triangle Pose Flow
Day 2: Lotus Pose (with easier variations!)
Day 3: Cobblers Pose for happy hips :)
Day 4: Boat Pose for a strong core
Day 5: Sita Ram Mantra
Day 6: Locust Pose - Awakening back bends :)
Day 7: Warrior Flow- a gently awakening sequence
If you wish you can expand your practice by adding either of the following suggestions:
Calm abiding meditation:
You may also wish to deepen your Sadhana by doing a few mins a day of simple breathe awareness meditation: Sit upright, set a timer for between 2-5 mins, close your eyes and observe your breathing. When your mind wanders just gently bring it back to the breath.
This Practice has sooo many benefits for the mind and nervous system
Hot water with Lemon:
You can end your session with a cup of hot water with some lemon squeezed in. It is a wonderful warming way to gently rehydrate and detoxify that has been used by yogis for millennia- if you have the time then you can read a few pages of an inspiring book, or just enjoy a quiet and mindful moment :)
I hope you have a wonderful week.
