Yoga for Your Heart: Rock & Roll!

Is your heart feeling heavy, depressed, anxious? Then, sometimes you just gotta' "Shake it Off"!

Yogi Zain and I are doing a rolling practice to get things moving. We start from Paschimottanasana (intense stretch of the west) which is a forward bend to Halasana (plow) which is an inverted forward bend.

Then, we mix it up with Malasana (garland pose) a standing squat, to Uttanasana (intense stretch) standing forward bend, to Urdhva Ekapadattanasana (One leg extended up) another standing forward bend, to Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog). 

Finally, I support Zain in doing a freestanding handstand. You can use a wall if you are practicing on your own.  And feel free to mix up the poses you go into because....

most importantly....Have fun! 

The dull brain becomes active and the brooding mind gets refreshed. Thus, it is kind of a brainwash, where the person begins to see with new perspective and a better future.”
