Mother’s Day Revitalizing Practice

This sequence helps us find our spiritual expression of the authentic feminine within. We all need time for deep rest in order to renew. As we support the poses, our bodies begin to release, our breath deepens, and our minds begin to quiet. This internal focus deeply nourishes our Yin energy—our deep reservoir of feminine power. Belly-down backbends connect us with the earth and our nabhi centers—our first place of contact with our mothers and source of divine nourishment. It is through our connectedness to this core that we restore and replenish.
