Adding the core to help hand balances in the future. Tues 745

Summer solstice was last night and still today so lets focus inward and allow healing.

Last weeks hand balancing went very well, however the core work just makes it so much easier so we will be adding in some Pilates based work and see how much of a difference it makes.  8)

Pranayama: Sahaja, Dirgha, Sun Breath moving hands up the mid-line to swan dive down toward feet.

Using 2 blocks for squat work, lowering to the floor and back up. Sustaining the squat and extending one leg and holding then the other. Hand balance Tolasana.  Toe stretches, foot stretch and ankle/calf stretch.

Roll like a ball,  Navasana flow.  Knees to chest ab work we did a couple of weeks ago just to keep it fresh in the body. 

Cat rolls. Standing strength.

Balance fun:  Star    Crane    Tree   Balance stick as a flow no touching down if you can help it.  Chair with twist up to a balance posture.  Twists and forward folds before aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy will be Shanti tonight from Yoga Flow Oils thanks Susan.
