Intentions with an Open Heart

60 min - Practice


In this class we move step by step toward Ustrasana, Camel Pose. We begin engaging the muscles of the core and the back body as support for our heart opening. We warm the body in Sun Salutes, lunges, and Locust pose, explore Ustrasana with the support of blocks, and make our way to the floor for cooling counter stretches. To close, we enjoy a guided Yoga Nidra body scan practice in Savasana mediating on sankalpa, our deepest, most heartfelt intention. You will feel calm and open-hearted.
What You'll Need: Mat, Blanket, Strap, Block (2)

The savasna was well-earned and appreciated. Thank you for bringing up our sankulpas.  You taught for a variety of levels and with a compassionate approach. The yang elements were so invigorating. I was wondering why you stressed the tucked chin, and then it came in focus with our camel pose. Can you tell me once again, how you prepare your mind and body to float? Best, David

David G- Hi David, Thank you for practicing with me again and for your generous feedback. Well, floating is ultimately a state of mind.......hoping you are having a lovely day. Namaste, Birgitte

Birgitte: thank you so much for that comment. It is a yin state of mind and a state of yin body, too. It will come when it does. I can always use blocks (my lower body is much longer than my upper, and I have stenosis in my lumbar region). I had a lovely day, and I am going to this entire series as a challenge. Namaste as well.
