virabhadrasana I | warrior 1
Starting in Tadasana, step your feet 3.5 – 4 feet apart. Turn your right foot in 45 degrees. Press down through the heel and outer edge of your right foot. Square your hips to the front of your mat.
Bend your left knee so it is above your left ankle. If you have the flexibility work on aligning your left thigh so it can be parallel to the floor (widen your stance).
Reach both arms up toward the sky, turning the palms to face in. Let the shoulders press together on your back and keep the collarbone wide, reaching your lat muscles further down your back.
Reach higher through the pinky fingers; maybe bring your hands together. Keep your head and neck in a neutral position. Reach your sternum forward and upward, gazing forward or tilting your head slightly to gaze between the thumbs
Stay breathing in this pose for 30-60 seconds. To come out of the pose, inhale and straighten your left knee. Turn your feet so they are parallel with the legs wide, and then switch sides, repeating the pose on the right. Come back to Tadasana.

~ love & light,
the remover of obstacles
the god of wisdom, knowledge, and new beginnings
we must take adventures, in order to know where we truly belong
we only experience scarcity and lack when we do not allow ourselves to receive
every thought is a choice
the only limits in life are the ones we make
affirmation of the day ~
I listen closely to the silence.
Intuition guides my choices.
I feel connected to all life,
you know the truth by the way it feels
choose what brings you peace
realize that the present moment is all you have. make the “NOW” the primary focus of your life
salute the sun
be really, really happy. don’t hold back. when you relax and enjoy the moment, those around you will feel your positive energies and be a little happier too! smile to the world, and the world will smile back! smile and the sun will shine!
light and bright mix for those fun mornings when practicing your sun salutations. features bob marley,snatam kaur, iron and wine, and more!
take time to enjoy the little things in life. because one day you will look back and realize that they were the big things.
when was the last time you watched the sunset? did you experience the array of colours? did you notice the shapes and layers of the clouds? could you feel the whisper of the sun as it set?
this mix was made to inspire you to enjoy the little things in life. to take time to be present in the moment. to go with the flow of life.
children of nature
let us stand in the sun wearing wild flowers in our hair and let us huddle together as darkness takes over. we are at home amidst the birds and the trees we are the children of nature…
~ get on your mat ~
step away from your day, and get on your mat.
