We’ve started something new! On Monday’s we will start posting one yoga posture that can be easily modified for a Scleroderma body.
Lori has been modifying her postures since she began yoga in 2010. With a pretty limited body, she has developed a good skill for it. Here is one variation of down dog and two variations of side plank.
If we can’t get down to the floor, we bring the floor up to us. It’s all about safety and comfort.
Yoga is for every body, let’s keep those bodies moving!
This month there is this annoying pull to sweat the small stuff. But don’t forget to do life and to work on your soul and your soul connections. February is an exercise in maintaining the “Big picture”.
Is there something that doesn’t really matter but the maya/illusion has convinced you that it matters? Just an example: Maybe you are working too much because you feel like you have bills to pay. But this doesn’t allow you to spend much time with your children. Bills are important to take care of in this life but the soul connection with your children is something more eternal. Yeah, we are talking a really #bigpicture. So maybe there is a way to shift the work situation, or make do with less to help out your relationships.
That is the energy of this month- to not forget these eternal, astral relationships we get to experience in physical, dense, material, earthly form…through talking, hugs, eating together, snuggling, sharing space….
#Garuda or #Eagle mudra pictured here helps us keep the broader lense of life and infinity in focus. The right hand is closer to the body. This #mudra can be used to increase inspiration (with spirit) since the eagle is the highest flying bird it is the closest to #heaven. This mudra helps to balance the air/vata element in our body as well.
Everything we need to change our condition is within us, even our hands (mudras are so great for this) since our bodies are a microcosm of the universe. It is all perspective.
This mudra is also good for keeping warm when cold, or even when you have a cold it helps the body fight.
2018 Heart Number
There is a similar underlying vibe each month for the Heart number of 2018 even though the number itself changes each month.
Our heart strings will be tied to hard work and what you will master. Things that seem so hard will be so worth it.
Be more inclusive as much as our spirits allow so that all feel loved. Not just who we choose to love. We want the brilliancey and intelligence of this year to stay in a positive polarity. We also want those that hold such intelligence -if they don’t have the best motives to turn to the light and feel accepted as they are.
