Ever consider giving your body a gift this holiday season?
You’ve probably given many gifts to family, partners, friends, and co-workers, and hopefully, received gifts too. But what about your body during this hectic time? Could you give it a gift too?
The gift of slowing of down, stretching, releasing layers of tension, and receiving nourishment.
This is the purpose of your new yin yoga class that focuses on all things hips.
The sequence is designed to hold gentle hip postures for three minutes, then counteract that stretch with a bit of dynamic movement.
- You can expect diamond pose (so good), with a seated gentle twist.
- We then transition into half butterfly, followed by a seated back bend.
- Which leads into double pigeon pose, followed by reverse tabletop.
- And the practice ends in a supta baddha konasana savasana (reclined butterfly pose).
It’s so simple. It’s so soft. It’s so needed during this time of activity.
Because while I love dirty martinis with my dad, making latkes with my mom, opening gifts, socializing into the wee hours, and sneaking bowls of mashed potatoes after bed, I also love the gift of a nourished body.
A body that’s seen, heard, and felt.
A body that’s not taken for granted.
A body that’s prioritized.
A body that’s loved through the process.
This holiday season, don’t forget about your vessel. Find a moment to decompress from the external, so you can reconnect to and enliven the internal. Be your own best company, just for twenty minutes or so.
Not only will your body thank you, but gosh damn, your soul love will love you.
You deserve it friend.
