MOBILITY – down dog on a wall!

MINDFULNESS – mess around a bit with some alternate nostril breathing!

Today’s mobility work is to play around with down-dog and dolphin pose on a wall!

Both of these poses are profound shoulder openers and working your breath will help you get deep into the position.

You should feel a good hamstring stretch, which will tell you that you are hinging at the hips properly.

Today’s mindfulness work is to play with your nostrils a bit 😛

We naturally alternate our dominate nostrils about once every twenty or thirty minutes. This is a mindless process that your body does for you, but when you take control of your nostrils it’s much like taking control of your breath! It’s a powerful reset of your overall nervous system.

Try this out, it’s a little weird to start but once you get the hang of blowing air out of the opposite nostril, it’s pretty cool!
