Little different for everyone. A little sidearm balance play time. So, I’m going to go into sideplank and then eventually into a deeper sidebody stretch. You can do that with me, if you know that you want to work on maybe a sidearm balance here, or a crow or something like that. Anything that changes your perspective. I think it would be nice stretching through the sidebody. So for those who want to try moving along with me, I’m going to bring the right palm into center line, and then I’m going to come into a plank. Then I’m going.
To come on to the outer edge of my right foot, keep my hips lifted as I stack my ankles and inhale. Open up through my left wing. Now I’m keeping a nice extension through the crown of the head, I come into side plank here. I can always bend that top leg for a little more support. Everyone, lift your hips, open your heart. Stay here or work here. Or, drop the fingertips, just like we did in extended sideangle, and find a nice length from the outer edge of the left foot, all the way up through those left fingertips.

Stay here or drop the right fingertips down to come up and I really find this beautiful line in the right side of the body. Lifting the heart, lifting the hips. Again you can take a little variation here. And then I slowly release. Send it back, downward facing dog. Final breath here. Inhale fully. And exhale fully. Sweet. Lower the knees bring them together. Take a moment here in child’s pose, sending the fingertips back. Rest your for head down.
Let it go. Relax your shoulders. And then we’ll slowly tuck the chin into the chest and transition to flat back. When you arrive, take your palms into your knees and we’re going to open the knees wide. Take a second to just kind of teeter totter here. Relaxing the shoulders and the elbows down. Relaxing through the ankles and the feet and you might even close your eyes. Just kind of letting gravity doing the work here and feeling the wonderful support of the earth underneath your spine. And slide your hands all the way.
In to grab the arches of your feet. And we’ll keep the tail bone lengthening down as you draw the heels, the soles of the feet up towards the sky, happy baby. Can find a little movement here or you can just relish in the stillness. Working actively from the inside out. Then gently releasing. Soles of the feet come to the mat. I slide them all the way down and I reach my fingertips up and overhead. Walk the heels towards the bottom left edge of your corner and then shimmy your head and shoulders towards the top left.
Edge of your corner. Take the right hand, grab the right wrist and think up and over as you breathe into the right side body. For a deeper stretch, lift the right foot. Cross the right ankle over the left, so you’re creating a little crescent moon here. Supported and here you can really dig deep into the power of the breath. Notice how each inhale stretches the skin of the body. Creates space, invites in more ease. It’s that good, good energy. Good juju. I believe it. Gently release back to center. Go ahead and center yourself first. And then, mindfully,.
We’ll walk the heels towards the bottom right corner. Head and shoulders, trying not to sing the song. Head and shoulders shimmy up towards the top right corner. And I grab my left wrist this time. This might be enough. If you want a little more, if it felt awesome last time, you might lift that left leg up, cross that left ankle over the right. Breathe here. Sacrum’s nice and steady on the earth. Should feel no tension or pressure in the pelvic area or lower back. So if you are, come out of it a little bit. And then find.
Your breath. And then gently we’ll release. Center ourselves back on the mat. Take a second to press the palms into the earth and hug the knees up towards the chest. Nice and easy, twisting knees to the left and then to the right. So just keeping it nice and soft here today. More of a massage than a holding effect. Just kind of twisting it out before we relax. Of course, if there’s anything else you want to add to your practice, now’s the time to ask yourself what else could I use today Using these practices to inspire you. Encourage.
