Yoga Pose & Focus : 11/15-11/21

“I’ve died a thousand deaths, each time reinventing myself brighter, stronger, and purer than before. From the midst of destruction, I became the creator of myself. From the midst of darkness, I became my own source of light.” – Cristen Rodgers

Theme: Svadhistana
Svadhistana is our Chakra of sexuality and rebirth/creation. Scorpio calls upon our darkness and sexual energy – not as bad or toxic behavior – but as opportunities to create from the darkness (a womb afterall is pitch black) and experience PLEASURE. Where can we create from the darkness and imbibe in pleasure?

Flow // Restorative Pose: Ardha Bekasana // Bekasana 
This week our classes share two variations of the same pose, Bekasana. Whether the full or half version, we connect and root our pelvis to the earth, activating Svadisthana, the sacral chakra. Bekasana asks a lot of our quads and low back, which can sometimes make our thoughts turn to panic. Can you find the pleasure amidst the discomfort? Be gentle and give yourself permission to ease in and out of this big pose.
