dog pose

a simple favourite for grounding ourselves, here are some ideas to explore in dog pose…

allow the palms of your hands and soles of your feet to yawn open – encourage them to be sprung, mobile, lively.

keeping life and movement in your feet and legs, let your out breath pour down your arms into your hands – they settle, then sink onto the ground

let your neck lengthen, emerging from your shoulders as you breathe out – feel how the spine can lengthen now and how free the head feels – just hanging

when you feel you have a lively earth connection from your tail through your upper body, send some breath out to your feet – connect with the earth through your feet

‘To be healthy, one needs the earth and the sky.’ Chinese Proverb
