Awaken your ability to see and receive beauty with this easy and invigorating posture flow created by Jennifer Reis.

EXHALE “Though at times I see nothing but my troubles and others suffering.”
Retreat and rest within in Child’s pose. Go inward. Invite and feel all feelings as they arise.

INHALE “Beauty in the world lifts and heals me.”
Smile and from Child pose sweep your arms up overhead. Open your arms like a flower in bloom welcoming beauty in.

EXHALE “I look inward and find beauty fills me.”
Downward Dog: Bring your hands to the earth and press your hips up and back. Root your fingers and hands into the ground, and gaze toward your hips. Feel Earth’s grounding presence rooting and comforting you as a support for the act of looking inward.

INHALE “I celebrate beauty all around me.”
From Down Dog, step your Right foot forward and raise your arms into Anjanyasana. Reach upward as the fountain of life and let your being be showered by vital energy of beauty all around you.
