Season 1 - Episode 19

Day 18: Courage to Trust

60 min - Practice


Shraddha is not blind faith, but a quality of trust based in ones own experience, this sense that the Universe has our back. In Day 18, Alana guides a practice to give us courage to trust. We warm up with some slow lunge salutations, move into holds in Pyramid and Revolved Triangle to build stability and strength in the legs and hips, feel into the center channel of the body in Tree Pose, and play into Ustrasana surrendering the heart to the support that is always there to hold us. You will feel a sense of wholeness and equanimity.

I like this concept of trust based on our experience, our presence and our awareness. The opposite of blind trust. Thank you Alana.
Wonderful, Ali. So happy that this resonates with you. As I feel into this possibility of shraddha or trust, based on our experience, it's inspiring, uplifting and empowering... pointing towards Self Trust. Again, thank you for being here, Ali. Your presence and participation is a gift. Love, Alana
