Welcome back!! We hope you had a wonderful holiday yesterday. It is day five, which is the last pose day of this mini yoga challenge! Awesome job!
*This weekend, you can chose Saturday or Sunday to set aside some time for you to practice some meditation.
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.
Your final pose of this mini yoga series is..
Tree Pose or “Vrksasana”
This is an excellent balancing pose. It builds confidence and can help to center your mind.
Start by finding your balance. Stand on one leg and place your foot up to your ankle, shin or thigh depending on your flexibility.
You can place a hand on the wall or stand with your back against a wall for balance. Feel free to lift your arms (branches) in the air if you just don’t care (or are feeling very centered)
It’s also great to alternate legs to work on balance on both halves of your body. Inhale for 5 counts, exhale for 6. Namaste.
