Movement: Camel Pose

Camel pose

Practice strength and surrender with camel pose.

Come to your knees, hip width apart. Place your hands, fingers pointing down, on your lower back. Inhale and lift the heart. Exhale and drop the head back while you bring your elbows towards each other. When you are ready, you can drop your hands to your ankles or heels.

Practice sthira by keeping structure in this pose, the core engaged, tailbone dropping down and heart lifting. Practice sukha in this pose with steady, rhythmic breathing and softness in the shoulders.


Meditation: Loving Kindness Meditation

Cultivate breath awareness as a daily practice to come into sweet balance with this loving kindness meditation.

Sukha & Sthira: Sukha is the vedic concept of ease. Its opposite is sthira, effort. The rhythmic balance of the two is what we strive for in every moment. The best way to gauge whether you are in balance is to turn your awareness to your breath. Is it rhythmic and smooth or is it short and fast?

Watch the guided meditation video below to lead you to awareness and awakening.
