Day 19 of Amber’s 30 days of yoga support

“Seeking love keeps you from the awareness that you already have it – that you are it”

–  Byron Katie

YOU ARE LOVE, can you close your eyes and feel that?  I invite you to take a minute and breathe that into your heart, into every cell in your physical body.  Infuse your breath with kindness and compassion, acknowledging the infinite reservoir of love that you are.

Welcome to day 19!  Wow, how did we get here?  Day 19.

As I sit down to weave together a little mini yoga practice for you, the rain falls outside.  I love rainy days, I feel like it’s natures invitation for us to cocoon a little, nurture an easeful gentle practice, read a good book, cozy up with our favorite blanket and drink tea in the company of our journal.

The rain allows us to connect with it’s energy, imagining our stress washing away with the pure droplets that fall from the sky.

I wish for you a cozy day today.

Our practice will support an introspective experience, inviting you to connect with your breath and the energy of your heart.

Our movements will help to open the chest, support your breast health, release the rib cage and thoracic cavity, stimulate your lymphatics, and nourish and nurture your heart.

Coming to a comfortable seated position, with your palms in prayer pose connected to the energy of your heart in the center of your chest.

We’ll take a few deep grounding breaths together.  On your next inhale, opening your arms out to the sides (as if you’re going to give someone the biggest hug ever), as you exhale, bringing your hands back to prayer pose.  Inhale, lifting arms up towards the sky through the center line of your body as you open the space between your hands about 2 feet, exhale bringing hands back together in prayer pose and slowly lower hands back to your heart center.  We’ll move through a few cycles of this gentle sequence.  Close your eyes down and allow this to be a dance between your breath and your body.

Let’s do a few shoulder circles together, and come laying down on one side.  Resting your arms extended in front of your body, and your legs in a bent position as if you’re sitting in a chair.  It’s best to watch the video to have a visual of this movement.  There is no text book way of doing this movement, I want you to really explore the circles in any way that makes sense for you.  We’ll be drawing circles around the body, moving slowly, noticing sensations, releasing tension, and relaxing.  Relaxing into ourselves.

Thank you for being with me today, it is a privilege and such an honor to be invited into your day.

My love travels with you

Till tomorrow

Amber
