Good Way

A good way to start the day

Try it.....

Weather cold at the moment
but have memories of
day beginning on a
 beautiful sunny Spring morning
and beginning the day doing this on my deck
with the sounds of nature in the air.

At this time it is on a mat
in front of glass door
with beautiful Fall colors viewed.

Be careful
if this is new to you....

Credit goes to a special online friend
who writes "gappa"

You remind me that I have been away from yoga for a while and must start it again! That visual is great and I will print it out and take it downstairs to my exercise area.

I can do the first two and last two positions--that's about it. If I got down on the floor, I would not be able to get back up without crawling to a piece of furniture to pull myself up--hips and knees just can't take it anymore.

Tabor, this visual came from
gappa -
My day goes better if I do a
minimum of 15 and try for 30-45 minutes first thing every morning.
I also have a copy in two areas :)

Judy, I do most of these
but a lot of other things...
Over time
it will happen.

Yes! Beautiful practice! Breathing always. Eyes closed or soft. Jaw relaxed. Shoulder blades dropped. Body aligned. Breathing always.

Have done that yoga sequence manmy times. I love it...

A timely reminder. Winter brings with it sedentary habits,
so yoga would be a splendid alternative.

If someone wants to try salute to the sun and isn't quite limber enough to reach the floor, it works great to use a chair - as long as it is firmly against a wall so it won't move. I've done it this way for years and it is just fine.
