Learning to open your heart and feel the preciousness of each moment is a gift of yoga. Practice the variations of the WARRIOR poses to be ferocious, steadfast, strong and gentle. Find balance between the active power of masculine energy (Shiva) and the receptive, calming, embracing feminine energy of Shakti.
February is National Heart Month. Share love, kindness, generosity and forgiveness to improve your heart health!
Warrior poses help to strengthen the whole body, focus the mind and elevate the spirit!
In this Reverse Warrior or Sun Warrior (Viparita Virabhadrasana) the heart and chest are expanded so you can breathe more deeply. Awaken from the sluggish energy of winter and come onto your mat with the ferocity and determination of a true warrior.
Try using yoga as a warm-up or cool-down to your aerobic exercise. Find balance in being active/outward as well as being receptive/inner. Listen to your inner warrior to know when it is time to make something happen and when it is time to go with the flow! Enjoy the beauty of doing and of being.
