Thinking is part of being human. It’s what our brains are designed to do. And sometimes, the mind gets so crowded and snarled with thoughts that it’s impossible to see anything BUT the thinking. Body~mind practices that invite us to drop into sensation and the present moment can give us some space between us and all the thinking.
Today’s Moon River Restorative Yoga series focuses on allowing space between us and our thoughts…and in the joints of ankles, low back, and neck. Find the video here.
Props for the Practice:
• carpet ~ blanket ~ yoga mat (or all three!) on the floor
• 2 bath towels
• 2 firm pillows
• 1 blanket
• eye covering (optional)
• tea or water (optional)
