Work It Wednesday – Yoga For Happiness

Happy Wednesday!

Join me for a 20 minute yoga sequence that will leave you feeling GOOD! Today’s sequence includes poses that will open you up making you feel energized and empowered, leaving a smile on your face. As you perform each posture, be mindful of your body, recognizing tight spots and trying to let go of tension, reaching new depths of openness.

Sometimes I feel frustrated when I am in wheel pose. When we perform poses that open up our hearts, we are exposing a part of ourselves that our instincts tend to protect. When I make an effort to let go of my feelings of frustration I am rewarded with a lightness. I am able to deepen my wheel as my chest and shoulders harbor less heaviness. At the end of my practice I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest feeling happy and free.

Is there a particular pose that makes you feel frustrated? If so, what pose and how do you approach it?
