Summer Coaching 3



Open shoulders, open heart


When you open your heart – listen.  For the signals your body is sending you, the emotions that might be swirling, and the inner voice that can only be heard when you tune out of the everyday noise.

It’s so easy to just turn on the TV, radio, or rush into the next task.  But opening your heart, means that you need to find a quiet space.  It means finding your courage and resolve.  (If you haven’t seen the blog post on Sankalpa Mudra, make sure to check that out.  It is a nice compliment to this practice.  If it doesn’t come up right away, check back in a little while.  It will be posted around 9 a.m. EST on 7/29/16.)

take action

After you’ve paused and looked before you leaped.  Do the following video, plant your feet firmly on the earth, and pay attention to your shoulders.  If something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it.  These yoga positions can look deceivingly easy, yet they take are quite challenging.

Let’s get to playing yoga!
