Yoga seed – space
Welcome to this precious moment.
And this will only take a moment.
You might like to gently scan your body,
Notice what it is telling you and then
Make any adjustments so you feel comfortable.
If you can scrunch your toes and then spread them apart
You might notice some space between your toes.
Now clench your fists, squeeze them tight and
Let them go, allowing your fingers to gently curl.
With your palms face up, feel the warm space in your hands.
As you tuck your tail under a little and
Lift through the crown of your head
You create cushiony space between the vertebra of your spine.
Dropping your shoulders back and down
Brings an openness to the chest
Which allows the breath to flow freely and
Creates nurturing space in which the lungs can expand.
Follow the next breath in, through your nostrils,
Feel the expansion in your lungs and
The release with the next breath out.
Follow your breath –
In … and … out … and … in … and … out …
Now perhaps you can focus on the space between the breaths –
After the breath leaves your body, can you
Sense the pause, however fleeting, before the next breath begins to flow in?
Then after the next inhalation,
Can you notice the moment of full expansion,
The space before the exhalation.
Observing the spaces in your body and your breath,
Creates space in your life,
Affirms the space you have to allow your true self shine through.
