Dancer pose is one which requires strength, flexibility, and balance – definitely one to work up to! It tones and strengthens the leg muscles, stretches and opens the shoulders and chest, improves balance, and focuses the mind.

1. From mountain, shift your weight onto the balancing foot (right) and bend the opposite knee (left).
2. Reach your left arm back and take hold of top the top of your left foot.
3. Inhale: reach your right arm high and press the top of your left foot into your left hand.
4. Exhale: hinge forward at the hips, reaching your right hand long, let your left knee move up and back in-line with your left hip.
5. Continue to breathe: gaze forward, pressing your right foot into the mat, micro-bend the right knee, keeping your left knee behind your left hip.
6. Inhale: return to vertical, exhale: release into mountain
7. Repeat on other side.

"Being your true self is the most effective formula for success there is."

Bridge pose is a great pose to modify to fit your needs – make it rejuvenating or restorative with a few easy tweaks.

To modify the pose, slide a block or bolster under your sacrum and rest the pelvis on this support. This is great if you have difficulty supporting your pelvis!

To deepen the pose, lift your heels off the floor and push your tailbone up. Then from the lift of the tail, stretch the heels back to the floor again.

"Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God."
1 Peter 1:22-23 (ESV)

"I’m Anna, a daughter the King of Kings and I am currently in recovery from clinical depression and PTSD from childhood abuse and alcoholism and am finding victory in Christ over codependency. Through Holy Yoga, my soul finds rest in the palpable presence of the God of all the Universe. He’s in every cell of my body; He’s in every breath.

When my Grammy died in 2014, I buried my grief by digging into a yoga teacher training. In retrospect, God was obviously helping my heart heal and preparing me. On the days when spiritual attacks come; when the depression, suicidal thoughts and isolation suffocate me, I’ll do yoga on the floor of my therapist’s office, letting the healing tears flow. I used to hate crying, when I lived in deep denial with my worldly coping mechanisms. My Heavenly Father’s given me a safe place to rest my tired soul, - my Holy Yoga practice.

I soak in the Truth that I am his Beloved Daughter; He renews my soul; and He reminds me to love myself as much as He loves me. Meditation and having scripture read over me are what my Lord knows my soul really needs. As much as the enemy of this world does no want to be on this earth, God needs me alive to share what he’s done in my life and Glorify Him.

The Holy Spirit, my best friend, inspires me to always sing to my students in Savasana when I teach traditional Yin and Vinyasa classes. I get to share Christ’s victories in my life, as I worship, praise, testify, preach, teach, hug, and pray God’s Holy Yoga at churches, studios, recovery meetings, and rehab centers in Las Vegas!” -Anna

Cow pose is typically done in conjunction with cat pose, while focusing on breath work. Cow post is done on the inhale, while cat pose is done on the exhale.

Both poses are great for:
•Relieving stress and back pain
•Improving posture
•Increasing flexibility of the neck, shoulders, and spine
•Stretching the hips, back, abs, chest, and lungs

Keep moving

Pastor Rick Warren

The Bible tells us to “pray all the time.”

One way to do this is to use “breath prayers” throughout the day, as many Christians have done for centuries.

You choose a brief sentence or a simple phrase that can be repeated to Jesus in one breath: “You are with me.” “I receive your grace.” “I’m depending on you.”

My husband has been gone all week, so I have lived in this space as I’ve prepared to share Holy Yoga at a Ladies’ conference this weekend. It’s seen my tea cup and cozy flannel shirt, my pajamas and my yoga pants. Most importantly, it’s been the site of a great big pile of books.

“He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved. You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. But at your rebuke the waters fled, at the sound of your thunder they took to flight; they flowed over the mountains, they went down into the valleys, to the place you assigned for them. You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth.”-Psalm 104:5-9

Great Big YES

If you don’t know what to do, get down on your knees. Get into child’s pose. Tell your ego to stand down. Tell your false self-full of pride and self righteousness and self consciousness- to get out of the way. Go low. Release. Unfurl your brow and unclench your fists. It will be uncomfortable and you will not like it at first. Who cares? You are not meant to be comfortable all the time. I can hear your “buts” now- but I’m busy, but I’m too old, but I’m too heavy, but I don’t need that, but that’s for other people...stop. Just do it. Get out of your head and into your body. Listen to your body, your breath, your heartbeat. Stay there. Breathe. When you want to get out, stay. When your mind says, “this is dumb”, stay. When you start to feel, stay. If you start to cry, stay. If you feel relief or fear, stay. If you feel fidgety or anxious, breathe and stay. This is the beginning. ✨

When I Don’t Know How to Pray

“When the upright need help and cry to the Eternal, He hears their cries
and rescues them from all of their troubles.
When someone is hurting or brokenhearted, the Eternal moves in close
and revives him in his pain.
Hard times may well be the plight of the righteous—
they may often seem overwhelmed—
but the Eternal rescues the righteous from what oppresses them.
He will protect all of their bones;
not even one bone will be broken.”
—Psalm 34:17-20 (VOICE)

An unexpected phone call, a piece of mail, a conversation at work or at home...there are certain moments in life when I become so overwhelmed that I honestly don’t know how to pray. I don’t know the words, or how to even begin expressing what I feel—probably because I don’t even know how I feel.

The Bible promises us that God is always with us. Always. During every uncomfortable conversation, throughout every painful season of life, in every impossible moment of our days. He is always with us.

Years ago I shared with a friend that I sometimes get so overwhelmed or emotionally confused that I don’t know how to pray, and she told me I needed “Tiger prayers.”

I guess that made me smile because it sounded silly. So I asked her to explain.

She told me that when we pray during normal circumstances, we fall back on learned prayers or common phrases we feel comfortable with. If you grew up in a more formal worship style, you may use a more formal language when you pray. Or you may find yourself praying the way you heard your pastor or parent pray. You may even sprinkle in some “Thee” and “Thine” and “If Thou Wouldst help me” (can I get an Amen from my sisters who love the poetic sounds of KJV!)

She went on to say that when we feel overwhelmed or confused or in an emergency mindset, our “learned” patterns of prayer disappear. We draw a blank. We have no words to pray.

“What would you do if a hungry, roaring tiger leapt through the open window toward you right now, and you could not run?” my friend asked me.

“I would scream!” I shuddered at the thought.

“Yes, you would probably scream and yell out to God,” she said. “That’s what I call a Tiger prayer. If a tiger jumps through my window, I will not remember my King James language prayers; I will scream out, ‘Help me, Lord!’”

I have reflected on that conversation many times over the years (I’ve been Tiger praying for over 30 years now) and I still find it to be a powerful way to pray when my mind and spirit are speechless.

The Bible tells us in Romans 8 that when we have no words, the Holy Spirit cries out for us, in expressions that go beyond human language. Think about that, sisters. The Holy Spirit is praying on our behalf, always for our good, even when we are silent.

If you find yourself overwhelmed or distraught or hopeless, or simply without the words to articulate your pain and what’s going on in your heart, cry out in a “Tiger prayer” and let the Holy Spirit intercede for you.

I am grateful every day for the presence of the Holy Spirit to pray for me when I am simply unable. Do not despair, friends. The Lord knows our limitations. The Spirit prays for us beyond our limitations, in a voice that soars straight to the throne of the King. Amen!

“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness.
For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.
And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
—Romans 8: 26-28 (NLT)

Praying Tiger prayers for a very special friend today,
Shari Finkler
