This season we have already endured some heat, humidity, thunderstorms and heavy rain that July can bring. The summer continues our conservatism of washing, masking and distancing in hopes to prevent a viral surge, and the important revolution for racial and social justice! The actions and emotions that unfold from such a dramatic year, the changing weather, ongoing environmental crisis, increased pollen, and fluctuating barometer pressure can affect each of us differently. Some of us may feel weighted down and sluggish, while others may feel increased energy and stamina pulling in the heightened vibration of this full moon phase. Whatever you are feeling, when you observe and listen to what the body needs, it is the heart of self care.
Part 1: This short practice uses the support of the wall to lengthen the spine, open the hips, and release the lower body.
Part 2: This short sequence builds strength and balance coordinating movement and breath.
Part 3: This session is a guided meditation for relaxation. Pentacle pose, also known as Starfish pose is encouraged to fully embody the experience. This guided meditation is taken from Soften & Shine available now on Insight Timer.
May we continue to move, breathe, and meditate our way through this powerful transitory time that will bring change and awareness to our world.
