Welcome everyone I'm here with my friend Lori to explore Anahatasana. So as you're ready just come to the hands and the knees. Good and keep the hips in line with the knees and walk the arms out resting on the forehead or the chin. Okay so we'll see here that Lori's kept her hips essentially in line with the knees if they come forward a little or draw back a little that's fine. We're mostly looking for that angle. Her arms are actively extending absolutely okay to let them make contact with the earth in this pose. We just want to make sure that they stay active and there's energy moving out through the fingertips. Really simple adjustment. You'll come near, brace yourself squatting down a little bit so you have your own firm foundation. Take one hand to the sacrum and the other hand right around the back of the heart and then stabilizing with the hand on the sacrum and letting the other hand gently kind of move down if there's any pressure it's on either side of the spine not the spine itself. And then to release let the hand around the back of the heart go and then let the hand on the sacrum go. Thank You Lori you can come into child's and just rest for a moment. So really nourishing pose really simple adjustment that can be super sweet for the student. Play with that see how it feels. Thank you so much.
