URU @ Vegfest, Master-level Reiki attunement, Blissful Release & Restore… and MORE! Practice of the Week: Showing up for your practice in studio is amazing, AND there is something extra magical about showing up for your practice outside of the studio. The URU team desires to support you in deepening your personal practice and to empower you to take learning and practicing into your own hands. This week we invite you to explore an asana, a physical posture. Mulasana (Garland Pose/Yogi Squat) Malasana is a deep yogic squat. A non-exhaustive list of benefits to practicing and refining this posture are: Stretches your feet, ankles, and legs. Creates space in your lumbar spine. Opens hips and groins Improves digestion Can help soothe menstrual cramping A wonderful pose to energetically ground. How To: Traditionally, you access this pose from a modified Tadasana (standing Mountain pose). If coming from standing, allow the feet to be wider than the hips. Toes turn outward, hips are externally rotated. Keeping the chest lifted, you’ll begin to lower down. On the way down, letting the knees track over the toes. Once you arrive, make any adjustments/sways that your body needs to be comfortable! and most importantly, Breathe. Press your elbows into your thighs, and equally press your thighs into your elbows with your hands at heart center. You may desire to place blocks underneath you to sit on. You may desire to prop the heels up on a folded blanket. If you’d like to practice this on the ground, lie flat on your back. Hug your knees into your chest, and then take the palms to your knees and spread them far apart. Allow the knees to come down towards your armpits. You can always place blocks under your knees for more support. You can also do this using the wall to support. It is the same as the lying back variation, just your feet are pressed into the wall. This is a reminder that there is no one “right way” to be in a pose. There is always an opportunity to modify for your unique body! Happy practicing! JOIN US THIS WEEKEND…..
