Gratitude is a profoundly powerful practice that allows us to stay in a state of expansion and growth, even through the most intense moments of life. Our meditation takes us into the energetic heart space, and we continue to expand that awareness through the physical body as we flow from heart opener to heart opener! Sun Salutation C (Surya Namaskar C) with hands interlace variation to Warrior 1 (Virabhadrasana 1) with hands interlace variation and also Wide Legged Standing Forward Bend (Prasarita Padottanasana C) with the hands interlaced prepares the body for the openness that gratitude calls for!! Balance postures Flying Pigeon/Crow Prep(Eka Pada Galavasana), Eagle (Garudasana) and Crow (Bakhasana) bring focus and clarity of the mind. We peek with deep backbends ~ Locust (Shalabhasana), Bow (Dandurasana) and Camel (Ustrasana) to facilitate an expression for the opening of the heart. Tough love abdominals :) and lovely spinal twist and contemplation in Reclined Cobblers (Supta Badha Konasana) for desert.
