Access Your Shoulders to Quiet Your Mind

Hatha | By Elena Brower on Aug 07 2012
Access your shoulders via this sequence of shoulder and hip openers, leading into an arm balance within which you'll practice having equal awareness in all parts of your body. Turn effortful poses into a chance to slow down and be aware everywhere in order to experience those moments of true quiet in your mind.

    Elena - I also definately enjoy this pace. Seems like the world is spinning faster so I desire a slower, more attentive practice. Also, the shorter formats allow me to manage to get to the mat more often. Thanks!
