Pose Breakdown: Crescent Lunge

Benefits: Stretch and strengthen the whole body, creating stability and balance.

Precautions: This pose should not be practiced if you have high blood pressure or heart problems. If you have any medical concerns, address them with your doctor before practicing yoga.

Modifications and Variations:
•If you're having difficulty balancing, try resting the thigh of your forward leg on the seat of a chair.
•Un-tuck your back toes and lower your back knee to the mat for low crescent lunge.
•For a deeper stretch, lower your back knee to the mat and bring your foot up towards the ceiling. Reach your same arm back and grab your toes, drawing your foot towards your glutes. Make sure to not break alignment, keeping your spine neutral.
•If you have a shoulder injury, try placing your hands on your hips.

Happy Baby is a great pose for the low back, as it helps to release the low back; lengthen and realign the spine; strengthen the legs; and open the hips.

The most common mistake we tend to see with this pose is the tendency to lift the back of the neck. Typically, this occurs when you don't quite have the flexibility to reach the bottom of your feet. If you find yourself struggling, try holding on to your ankles or shins. Remember that one of the most important things in yoga is to honor your body!

How do you like to incorporate Happy Baby into your practice?

Between the carnal world making massive shifts in consciousness and action, and the cosmic world rebirthing... who the hell isn’t left breathless? I’ve never really had anxiety, and I’m not even sure it’s what I have been experiencing, but damn this energy is heavy. I find myself exhaling.... like a lot. And audibly. A lot. I can’t seem to shake this low level of diffuse fear that has settled on my heart. It leaves me curious... how much of what I’m feeling is actually mine and how much of it isn’t.

I was talking to God this morning about my relational needs and how I’m new to realizing I have them. Most people are working on prioritizing theirs or developing communication styles to convey them. I’m just now getting that I even have them.

You can go one of two ways when abandoned at age 1 by your father. You can decide it’s safer you have no needs because having needs makes you vulnerable, and if you're vulnerable then you will be dependent on someone, which is the ultimate fear so you choose unavailable partners OR you decide it’s safer to cling. To hyper focus on human connection, whether beneficial or not (and let’s face it abandonment doesn’t bid well in the ‘beneficial’ department very often) and idolize it, wrapping our lives around the axis of another human and thereby suffocating them in the process.

Independent or codependent. Either way, still hyper dependent... on self or on others. I’ve lived my entire life in the land of independence... where the rhetoric was primarily pointing out the needs of others as weakness. I had to construct a story that made my ‘truth’ that independence is the only way ‘true.' I had to see through the lens of my chosen independence because it had become the lens with which my beliefs about myself and the life I was destined to live had been formed.

Except that I was not created in the image of codependent or independent. I was created in the image of interdependence. In the image of Wholeness and Perfection and of perfect integration. Maybe that’s why both independence and codependence are such significant ditches in our lives because it disrupts our truest sense of self... the connected self... the self that was made for complete union.

I guess that’s the most basic relational need and the only one I really have to concern myself with. Developing my inter-connectivity with Source and choosing to be disciplined in my interdependency with God will keep me from the alternate ditches of inter and co dependency.

Wanna share? What’s your go-to relational ditch and how do you overcome? ✨✌🏻

Dolphin pose is a great introductory pose to help strengthen your core, arms, and legs, while opening the shoulders.
🐬🐬🐬
Note: If you have any neck or shoulder injuries, keep your knees bent.
🐬🐬🐬
Beginners: Open your shoulders by lifting your elbows on a rolled-up sticky mat and pressing your inner wrists firmly to the floor.
🐬🐬🐬
How-to Dolphin:
1. Come onto the floor, on your hands and knees. Keep your knees directly below your hips, and your shoulders in-line with your wrists.
2. Keeping your forearms on the floor, curl your toes under, and lift your knees up on the exhale.
3. Pressing your forearms on to the floor, lengthen your tailbone and draw your shoulder blades down towards your tailbone.
4. Hold your head between your upper arms. Do not let it hang or press heavily against the floor.
5. Hold this pose anywhere between 30 seconds to 1 minute. To release, lower your knees to the floor on an exhale.

Revelation Wellness - Healthy & Whole

If anyone boasts, "I love God," and goes right on hating his brother or sister, thinking nothing of it, he is a liar. If he won't love the person he can see, how can he love the God he can't see? The command we have from Christ is blunt: Loving God includes loving people. You've got to love both.
-1 John 4:20-21, The Message

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.

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."

"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

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 topic? Using yoga to calm yourself down so you can meditate.
