{asana}

The third limb of yoga is the physical practice. Yoga asana, the pose, were designed to prepare your bod y to sit for meditation.

Challenge yourself for the next 30-days. Attend a few extra yoga classes. On the days you can’t, roll through some Sun A’s before work your after your workout. Before bead, take a child’s pose, ragdoll, and legs up the wall.

{hinge at the hips}

In our practice when we fold forward, we want to hinge at the hips, not bend at the waist.   We take forward folds, standing and seated, several times through our practice. We also use this same forward fold in our seated butterfly, in our pyramid pose, and even in standing splits.  

Stand tall in mountain pose. Pick your right leg up to hip height. Now bring your fingers to that crease where your leg bent.  Drop your foot, stand tall and bring both hands to your hip creases.
