Pose of the Day: Dolphin Pose

šŸŒŸ Pose of the Day: Dolphin Pose šŸ¬šŸ™šŸ¼

Dolphin pose, also known as Ardha Pincha Mayurasana in Sanskrit, is a great way to strengthen your arms, shoulders, and core muscles, while stretching your hamstrings and calves. This pose is similar to downward facing dog, but with your forearms on the ground and your head hanging down. Here’s how to practice dolphin pose:

1ļøāƒ£ Start on your hands and knees, with your wrists under your shoulders and your knees under your hips.

2ļøāƒ£ Lower your forearms onto the mat, keeping them parallel to each other and shoulder-width apart.

3ļøāƒ£ Tuck your toes under and lift your hips up and back, straightening your legs as much as possible.

4ļøāƒ£ Keep your head and neck relaxed, and look towards your feet.

5ļøāƒ£ Press your forearms and hands into the ground, and draw your shoulder blades away from your ears.

6ļøāƒ£ Hold the pose for a few breaths, feeling the strength and stability in your upper body and the stretch in your lower body.

7ļøāƒ£ To come out of the pose, lower your knees back down to the mat and rest in child’s pose.

Remember to breathe deeply and fully throughout your practice, and listen to your body to avoid any discomfort or strain. You can modify the pose by bending your knees, or using a block under your head or forearms to make it more comfortable. Dolphin pose can be a great addition to your yoga practice, helping you build strength, flexibility, and focus. Give it a try and see how it feels for you! šŸ¬šŸ™šŸ¼

Hi love, Iā€™m Silvia!

Iā€™m a specialist in starting over.Ā 

Trauma revealed truths that took me to some faraway places for healing and wisdom. In Bali, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Laos, Hawaii and Malaysia, I soaked it up, took bold actions, and expanded what was possible for me.

Through all of this I learned something profound;Ā the power of resiliency can be taught and even making a 5% change can change the future dramatically.

Now I teach women like you to access the power within you to change your life, celebrate your genius and start over to create any life you dare to dream.
