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 🙂

Getting to know your hamstrings

These standing poses will wake up the back of the legs.
Give the poses and your legs time. Muscles take a while to increase their length, so, just like you would not expect your muscles to grow immediately (think Pop-eye) don’t expect to be as bendy as Olive oil immediately either.
The stretch should feel more like a wide stretch in the main part of the muscle rather than a sharp pointy stretching sensation at the top of the leg near the buttocks.
Keep each stretch within your own capacity and enjoy the sensation of fresher feeling legs.

Ease into the evening

I’m tired. I don’t feel like doing anything. I especially don’t feel like anyone looking at me…
These are the times when our practice can become a real friend. It whispers to you “relax, take your time, be gentle, take care, breathe smoothly, breathe quietly, becalm”

This practice is perfect as a post-work, pre-evening practice.
Be gentle , listen to your body and don’t push.
Enjoy
