Just another Yoga practice…

Here it is… just another Yoga practice, with a boat.
Yes you guessed it, Navasana is there, just at the end. Maxine Lunn does this pose beautifully, I always have a picture of her in my head, just in front of st Micheal’s mount.
A boat is firm, well balanced and floats. Just a thought for when you attempt the pose.
Enjoy your practice, pay attention to your body and be sensitive to your needs.
Love and light,

Backbends on Tresco

It was so windy today I decided to pull a video out from my last visit to Tresco (one of the Scilly Isles).
The video was filmed just below the Block House looking towards Old Grimsby, a stones throw away from the introductory photo.
I think this island is the most beautiful place in the world (mainly because I feel so at home there).

This practice is suited for those who have a stronger practice (definitely not for beginners ), happy with back-bending asana and know their bodies well.

The sequence includes side-bow pose, Parsva Dhanurasana, and dropping back from head balance into bent legged Viparita Dandasana. You are welcome to miss these out.

As always; listen to your body’s inner wisdom and pay close attention to it’s requirements. Move safely and carefully.

Half-Asana

Some days I’m not in the mood for a strong practice. I feel a little “half-arsed” So I have learned to embrace that feeling wholeheartedly.
This is a suggested half-arsed practice.
When the pressure (whether internal or external) is removed, it is replaced with a new learning experience occurs.
A sensation of acceptance happens when we listen deeply to our body’s requirements and respond accordingly.
Enjoy letting go of your intention and feel where you are instead.
Remember, this is an ease-full practice for me so, be patient, kind and peaceful.

Love and light,
Lucy

p.s. This is a ‘pre-new-microphone’ practice, I apologize for the traffic noise 🙂

A practice for your legs

This practice is a great way to start the day.
Not much knee bending in this session, a simple practice with shoulder stand at the end.
Lift up your knee-caps, energize your thighs. Your legs should feel great after this routine.
Listen to your body and respond to it’s needs. It is the only one you’ve got!
Enjoy
