Hello My Beautiful People! Today’s pose, Threading the needle, teaches us to look within and know that your body is your temple. We all have limitations but in order to know what they are, you have to do as the pose says, thread the needle, and put in a little work.
Step By Step Threading The Needle Pose:
- Start in table pose, with your hands on the mat, wrists directly under your shoulders, knees under your hips and toes under your ankles. Point your fingertips towards the front of the mat, shins and knees hip width apart. Gaze down at your mat softly.
- Exhale, slide your right arm underneath your left arm, palms facing up. your right shoulder should come down all the way to the mat. Place your right ear on the mat and cheek on the mat and gaze towards the left.
- With your left elbow lifted at a 90 degree angle, and hips raised, position your head comfortably so that you are not pressing your weight on your head. Hold here for 4-8 breathes,
- To release from this pose, Press through your left hand as you slide your right hand out from under your left shoulder. Return to Table pose, and then repeat on the other side.
