Yoga Block Emotional Release

Yoga Block Emotional Release



beginning in to cast my easy pose take a
few moments to come to your breath maybe
use this time to set an intention for
the practice the day or even the week
ahead
you
next inhale we will begin to rotate the
neck in a circular motion gentle
movements
now opposite direction
perfect coming to your back keep the
knees bent feet rest flat on the mat get
comfortable here then when you’re ready
you can grab your block and place it
under the sacrum at the lowest setting
it’s ideal to have a bigger block than
the one I have here but this is just
what I have on hand you may place your
hands at your sides or place your right
hand on your belly left hand on your
heart this is a great way to feel the
belly rise up and down as you inhale and
exhale reminding you to breathe
while using blocks in these postures we
tend to hold tension within the back and
the hips even pressing through the feet
we want to acknowledge this and sigh it
all out with our exhales with that this
is an amazing emotional release it’s
also normal to cry and let go here so
don’t hold back really allow yourself to
fully surrender to the practice
you
if you’d like a little more of a lower
back massage
feel free to rock side to side
you may stay at the setting or you can
go ahead and clip it to the second
highest setting you’ll probably want to
adjust it a few times to get a
comfortable placement
you can also go ahead and rock side to
side here just do whatever feels good
you
if you’d like a bit more pressure go
ahead and lift the feet off the mat also
an option to rock side to side hold the
block if you need some extra support
you
release the block hugging the knees to
chest
knees rotate in a full circle here the
opposite direction release
we’ll then place the block along the
spine again you’ll want to play around
here just to get a comfortable placement
you can keep the knees bent otherwise
just put them straight out in front of
you if this is a bit intense go ahead
and place a pillow or a blanket under
the head or neck breathing at a slow
pace inhale hold on to that breath for a
moment and then exhale fully do this on
your own this is really just making that
space within the body and you’ll notice
less tension while being on the block
you
you can rest here as long as you’d like
when you’re ready we will place the
block across the spine directly under
the rib cage you’ll definitely have the
play around with placement here too and
add a pillow under the neck or head
again if it feels a bit too intense for
you will follow the same breath nice
deep inhale slow and steady feel free to
hold on to that breath for a moment and
exhale fully allowing yourself to
surrender releasing all that tension
builds up in the body
you
you
gently come to your forearms and release
the block take a moment to have the
knees to chest
and release namaste
