Mary, Betty & Dagmar in Standing Pose.
The moment we bring our awareness to our breath, that is the beginning
of stillness, of being in the moment. We breathe in, we breathe out,
we breathe a little more fully, a little more deeply, bit by bit we
become one with our being, expanding and opening into that sense of
Let us enter into our standing pose, tuning into our skeletal frame -
our structural foundation, placing awareness on toes, weight centered
over feet, aliveness of legs, slowly breathing into our core, into our
quietness, into our strength which resides deep within. Drawing up
through our frame, hands and arms resting at our sides, rib cage
expanding, chest opening, shoulders back and open, creating space
between our ears and shoulders, drawing up through the back of the
neck all the way to the crown of the head. We remain close to the
breath, following it all the way in and all the way out, our gaze
is soft, seeing without seeing, quietly paying attention.
Alignment tip for standing pose:
Create a spot at home to practice for a few minutes in
the beginning, standing with your back against the wall, heels, bottom,
shoulders, and head touching wall, tuck your chin in ever so slightly, with
a pleasant expression on your face and enjoy your new alignment!
You've grown about an inch!
And where did the time pass to? Well, that is what is meant by being
in the moment, that's where you were.
