Opening to the day

Below is a short yoga sequence that explores gentle upper body movements synchronised with the breath. Each movement can be experienced as a gesture (mudra) that evokes a certain mood or attitude within.

For me, an asana practice is a series of full body mudras; each posture touches us, opens us to a different aspect of ourselves, influencing the energy of the body and mind. Through yoga postures we learn to explore and develop these various aspects of ourselves such as strength (physical and emotional), softness, grace, humility, dignity, expansion, contraction, vulnerability and acceptance. We meet ourselves in yoga, and in going inward we have the opportunity to connect with ourselves authentically and then meet the world with integrity and truth.  We learn too, to open ourselves to the world around us, to the infinite possibilities that are there, to our full potential.

Blessings
