Dancer pose *
I used to live in denial suffering with eating disorders, insomnia, and severe panic attacks. I was constantly sick, completely disconnected from myself and my feelings.
Then I discovered yoga and slowly it taught me that we can heal. We can understand how to cope with our past and accept and love everything we are, imperfections and weakness included.
Through devotion to the practice, and learning to surrender to the present moment, we find the ability to heal and forgive others and also to forgive ourselves. Getting on a yoga mat and embracing the discomfort that comes with moving through the asanas teaches us how to deal with our limits and how to slowly let go of tension.
It teaches us to discover the connection between strength and flexibility and how empowering it is to surrender to it.
This ancient practice helps to understand that takes a strong person to admit to be afraid and fragile.
The more we practice being vulnerable and living from our heart, the easier it will become to act from that place in more of life’s situations and the stronger we will become. *
How to perform:
Start in Mountain Pose. Inhale, shift your weight in your right foot, and lift your left heel as you bend the knee. Engage the standing leg to be strong and stable. Inhale and reach back with your left hand and grasp the outside of your left foot or ankle. Lift your pubis toward your navel, engage your core and at the same time, press your tailbone toward the floor to maintain space in between your vertebra and protect your lower back.
Begin to lift your left foot up, away from the floor, and back, away from your torso. Extend the left thigh behind you and parallel to the floor. Stretch your right arm forward, in front of your torso, parallel to the floor
