Hello My Beautiful People! Today’s pose, Revolved Pigeon Pose, reminds us that we may bend, but never break. When you get to that point when you think your going to break, keep going! Go to your “I did that” space. That place where you are everything you ever doubted about yourself and then some of that surprise dopeness you like to hide.
Our bodies were created to move and if we are not mindful, we can do more damage than good. When your practicing this pose today, take the time to listen to your body. It will tell you how far you can push yourself and that is what matters. Mack each practice count.
Step By Step Revolved Pigeon Pose:
- Starting in Pigeon Pose, release your elbow to the mat in front of your right knee, palms facing down.
- Raising your right arm into the air, hold your right hip or for a deeper twist grab hold to your right toes.
- Actively draw your right shoulder back as you gaze over the top of your shoulder.
- Slowly exhale as you release your right toe or hip and twist back to the front into pigeon pose.
A Matr3Moni Reminder:
“NO MATTER WHAT, it’s your body and your choice.”
Please be careful while practicing; If you have prior injuries be extremely mindful of every movement and how it affects your body. By now you know your body and the difference between your pain and your stretch, so again, be careful.
Along with being mindful while practicing, you also have to be mindful of what is going on in the inside of your body and mental/spiritual realms. You can work your body in such a positive way and still counter the positive vibes by not having healthy habits and/or awareness. Do not fight against yourself, find ways to incorporate wellness habits into your daily activities.start trying new activities like yoga and cross fitness that engage all of your core muscles and then some that you didn’t know you weren’t working already.
