Yoga with Melissa 371 Moving at the Speed of Our Bodies, Find Your Still Center

by Melissa West on

Find Your Still Center

We live in a world of endless activity that tends to pull us away from our still center. From the minute we wake up in the morning our cell phone is in our hands and we begin the endless scrolling through social media and rushing through our days. Rarely in our day to we give our minds or bodies the opportunities for stillness without activity.

Reflect on your own life, and recall a time when you weren’t busy occupying yourself with screen time or other activities to busy your mind or body. In this yoga class you will have the opportunity to feel into your body and notice what it feels like to inhabit your still center. This yoga class is an opportunity to release the busy-ness of endless activity that occupy our lives and open to the still center inside of you. Throughout the class we will explore yoga poses to release the busy-ness that keeps you from your still center rest into your still center.

The yoga poses in this hatha yoga class are grounding and centering. Gentle grounding backends will open you to a place of stillness. Quiet inversions will help you to release the busy-ness of endless activity. Grounding in a sidebending version of warrior two will allow you to notice what it feels like to inhabit your still center. A front lying twist will help you to release the busyness that distracts you from your still center. Child’s pose and a mudra for emotional balance will allow you to rest into your still center.

Props: Meditation Cushion, Block

Yoga Postures/Asanas: Setu Bandhasana or Bridge Pose, Downward Facing Dog or Adho Mukha Svanasana, Warrior Two or Virabhadrasana Two, Wide Legged Standing Forward Fold or Prasarita Padottanasana, Sphinx pose or Salamba Bhujangasana, Front Lying Twist, Child’s Pose or Balasana, Mudra for emotional balance, Savasana or Corpse Pose
