Good for: Standing firm within yourself, while Welcoming in the world around you, and within you.
PREPARATION: “I Stand Firm.”

With feet wide apart, work on rooting your feet into the Earth and strengthening legs by hugging the muscles into the bones. Gently draw your legs towards each other like scissors closing.



INHALE: “I Welcome Everything In, Just As It Is.”

Bend your forward knee into Side Warrior as you bend both elbows with palms facing upward to open your heart and wings to the sky. Strengthen between the shoulder blades. Keep your knee over your ankle.
