A gardeners special! Well I don’t know about you, but I’ve been super busy in my garden and it’s only the Yoga that stopped me from being completely broken!
This practice (1 hour) helps me feel tall and loose again – yay! It specifically targets the back, neck, hips and knees, and helps the joints regain their mobility and stability. I sometimes to do the practice outside in the garden if it’s nice and sunny, it feels great to breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the birds and flowers.
If you would like to make it shorter – then start 15 mins in! The beginning is extra warm-ups. The last 10 mins is a simple savasana relaxation so you can skip that too if you’re short on time!
Moving with the breath further helps up to cultivate a relaxed state, bringing us into the “rest and digest” parasympathetic nervous system response. And as we deepen the breath, we encourage the circulation and release of waste deposits from the tissues – a by product of holding tension. Mixing in a little Qigong really gets our Qi (energy) moving!
P.S. You don’t have to be a gardener – any hard-working body will feel the benefit!
Enjoy! You will be back out there, fork in hand, ready to go another 10 rounds…
