What is #gobblenowobble?Gobble no wobble is a fun little mantra about staying healthy this holiday season! This includes centering ourselves and our minds so that way we can be fully present, calm and simply awesome! Gobble with happiness not wobbling because of too much pie! 😉
We will be posting a pose a day this week from the 24th through the 28th. This is great for all levels, including BEGINNER!! Yes, we encourage you to give it a try! Take a lovely photo of yourself rocking it and hashtag #gobbleNOwobble and #2mermaids on instagram and twitter, it will make our holiday the best! Then on the 29th and 30th (you can choose which day) we will practice some meditation. You can choose to do it on your own, or we will suggest an awesome podcast to follow along with to ease you into meditation.
Here is your 2nd yoga pose!
Child’s Pose or “Balasana”
This is a basic resting pose. It is one of my favorites. It stretches and relaxes the body. Hold this pose for a few deep breaths.
Start with knees and tops of your feet on the floor, with feet together and touching. With knees apart, rest your chest and belly between legs. Place your head on the floor and stretch your arms out in front of you.
Modify this move if your head doesn’t reach the floor. You can use a pillow or a yoga block to rest your head on.
