Season 1 - Episode 3

Day 2: Slow and Curious

60 min - Practice


Awaken your intuition and inner joy as we practice replacing the question "Am I doing this right?” with "Does this feel good?" In Day 2, we begin supine to connect with our essential core muscles, then explore moving in dynamic ways in standing postures to better align with breath and a playful attitude.

Your Self Care Homework Challenge for Day 2:

The homework for this challenge is cumulative, and today is focused on growing your morning self-care routine.

  • Body: Use a drop of Nasya oil in your nostrils to moisten dry tissues.
  • Mind: Massage aromatherapy-infused oil in the morning for deeper hydration and to calm the nervous system.
  • Spirit: Steep a cup of tea herbal tea in the afternoon (ex. hibiscus, rose, mint, fennel) to stay cool and hydrated.
What You'll Need: Mat, Blanket, Strap, Block

Melina-thank you I LOVED this practise with the block on my head ----i felt so calm and centred afterwards! It´s funny because I teach English here in Spain and when my little kids are getting overexcited I often play a version of "Simon says" - do you know this game in the states? Anyway, I get the kids to put their books on their heads and then walk slowly round the room or stand up and sit down,etc. They love it - and within minutes they are calm and focussed, their wee faces are a treat.¨¡! Isn't it strange that it´s ever occurred to me to do t myself when Im stressed - until now!
Have a beautiful day!

Very sweet core strengthening work, Melina!  Many thanks for this challenge : )
 I appreciated the mix of movement, meditation and advice.  The block on one's head was a wonderful new approach for me.
Music to my ears!!! I'm grateful these practices are appreciated and the props are being used to inspire your practice and new insights!
