In this final practice traveling the chakras, enjoy the feeling of being fluid, as Jeanne starts with a circulation-moving standing sequence to lubricate and enliven the joints. Then melt into supported long holds in Cat Tail Pose, Saddle Pose, and Snail Pose, releasing tension, nourishing organs, and calming the mind. You will feel serene and spacious.
Hi Jeanne, just loved this serene practice really liked the twist on the floor, I had to use extra bolster for back bend, afraid the snail was too challenging for me! bur would like to work on this can you give me some transitional tips. Many thanks
Hi Jeanne oops perhaps I did not explain the pose I was finding difficult very clearly. It was the one towards the end of the session with legs overhead. I find raising my legs upright in whilst lying down fine (tandasana) ?its getting up then over head, feel my core is just not strong enough ? but not sure as I usually find core poses no problem, ps I love the pace and extra time in poses really feels like my muscles just melt into it. Mmmmm
Mary hi! Oh yes this is a fun and a bit challenging pose!
Shoulder stand (Salamba Sarvangasana) to Plow (Halasana)
To build core strength: lie on your back and raise straight legs over the head, then slowly lower, repeat several times. Then try this variation below by walking your legs up the wall, slowly raising one leg up, then another... keep me posted!
