Heart opening posture with Basia Lipska
I held my Thursday yin yoga class yesterday focusing on dedication and opening the heart to connect. Many times we go through our day following our routine not reflecting on our selves or the world around us. I find it so relieving to stop and go through my body, emotions, mind and also on a spiritual level and reflect on where I am right now, where am I in this world and where is the world right now.
Giving your yoga session a deeper meaning by dedicating it to something special is a perfect way of connecting to yourself and the world around you. I do it in the following way:
Go through your body and see what area you want to specifically work on just that day, that moment. Reflect on how your day has been and decide to release stress end tension if that has been present this day, maybe it's on a mental level, automatic thoughts that doesn't serve you, you can focus on releasing them all through practice or maybe you want to dedicate your practice to someone outside yourself, a loved one, a group that needs support, someone in the world you know needs support and healing.
I decided to dedicate it to my daughters. These two beautiful young adults that they are now making their way out into this world. I reflected on where we are right now in relation to each other and where they are right now individually. I gave thanks to all the healing now present in our lives and a deep profound thanks that we are still alive and together moving into such a beautiful direction.
When I came home late at night the apartment smelled new baked bred and my youngest daughter came out of the kitchen munching on a hot bread with butter on. She had spent the afternoon baking bread. I felt blessed.
det är mycket nu ;)
