So, I woke this morning and unfortunately had the weirdest headache… On any normal occasion I would never EVER take pain relievers. They damage our livers. Yet it would not shake. Sadly, I took the damn pill…
The headache was still lingering like that damn Garbage song. I decided it would be a great idea to break out my old yoga moves! Duh!
I know the excuses come flooding in. Quite frankly I’m tired of hearing them and I’m tired of making them myself.
I decided on a yoga flow to build energy, relieve stress, and to lengthen my muscles.
Deep breath in and begin!
To start I stepped onto my mat and got into tadasana, mountain pose. Took couple breaths here.
*rise to standing
Repeat 3-5x to lubricate the joints
Crawling down to the mat
*Thread the needle
*Child’s pose Favorite
3-5 sun salutations at this time could be optional if you wanted to warm up more
*Low lunge Lovez!
*Some neck stretches
Ahhh at the end of this sequence I was refreshed, revitalized, and ready to paaaaartaaaaaay!
Movement, especially in the morning, is essential for a healthy strong body, mind, and spirit. It also leads to a more productive day, for sure!
So how can I make this a morning ritual?
-setup yoga mat the night before
-have yoga clothes on may just in case I need to feel like a”yogi” not just in a tank top and my panties!
-make sure my blocks, strap and meditation pillow are close by
I am so thankful to have such incredible knowledge and tools when it comes to giving my body what it truly needs to thrive!
