Moon circle, Yoga Alignment & Therapy, Sound bath, 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 (physical posture). Balasana: Child’s Pose Balasana, child’s pose, is one of the most grounding postures. Physically grounding, there are several parts of the body that touch the floor. Energetically grounding, it is a contracted, cocooned shape that allows you to go inward and be with yourself. There are many variations. To get a nice release in the lower-back, try keeping your knees and feet together as you lower your forehead toward the Earth. For more of a hip opener, spread the knees wide and keep the big toes together. Arm variations: extended overhead to stretch the chest and shoulders (pictured), arms reaching behind you towards your feet with the tops of the hands on the Earth for releasing your shoulders and rounding, or bringing your hands into prayer position overhead with elbows on the Earth for a deeper chest opening. This pose is amazing when you need a break in a yoga flow or when you need a break from navigating whatever life is offering. Enjoy several breaths in this shape before coming out. Happy practicing!
