Compass Pose- #IYOGLAXFLEXUARY

Hello My Beautiful People! Today’s pose, Compass, teaches us to that in order to grow we must connect our bodies and souls with full intention. They must become, in order to go beyond just being good. It takes focus, intention to push yourself past your already there “end point.”

Compass pose helps you to develop stability, and patience in your practice. Start your practice off with great intentions and follow through.

Step By Step Compass Pose:

  1.  Start by sitting in a cross-legged position.
  2. Bend your right knee and bring it close to your chest as if hugging it. Stretch out your left leg in front of you.
  3. Keep your right arm in front of your right leg and bring your right hand under your right leg. Put your fingertips firmly on the ground or mat. With your left hand, reach your right foot and lengthen your right leg as much as possible. Simultaneously take your left arm overhead and straightend (you will most definitely can work your way up to the starightend arm and leg).
  4.  You can keep your gaze fixed on your right foot, at your left arm or straight ahead.Hold here for at least 4-8 breathes and repeat with your other side

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 that engage all of your core muscles, and then some that you didn’t know you weren’t working already.
