The over-the-clothes abhyanga is genius! When I practice the oil version, it makes me feel so comforted and protected - however, in the bustle of everyday life I find it difficult to do on any sort of regular basis...now I can get this in as part of my daily yoga practice and no slippery shower floor 🙌
Aw, I'm so glad you dug it! And brava for practicing the oil version. Comforted and protected - yes. Now you have this version "on the go" or as a quick check in. I can even be caught doing it in the car :). Thanks for the comment! Stay in touch!
My mother had a bout of atrial fibrillation, which sent her to the hospital over Christmas. I was looking through YogaAnytime to find something that would help her, and I have since introduced her to Lymphatic Flow, in this series. Of course, any time I research something I feel would be good for her, I wind up finding something that is also good for me! I love this series; your exceptional courage, narrating your own grief; and inviting our ears to live long and prosper. (Yes, that finger arrangement IS consummate Star Trek-ian.)
Abhyanga is something about which I have long heard is a good thing, but I'd never gotten around to doing. The practice is powerfully effective, whether full-on, with oil, or clothed. Both my mother and I give it a sterling thumbs up! Thank you, ~ Peter Ferber
So happy to receive your message! What a wonderful story and generous practice to share with your mother. I'm so glad she has (you both have) experienced benefits from it. I love that this was something you "got around to doing" out of support for your mom. Sometimes we need a reason beyond ourselves...and a buddy to share it with. May the force be with you both...
