Step 4) Stretch After a Long Trip (asana)"You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state." -Sharon Gannon
Ever been uncomfortable in your own skin. Feel like you could crawl right out of it. Well that's what yoga postures are for. If yoga's not your thing though, you might want to try walking the dog, joining a spin class, try surfing, or whatever gets you moving.
When we stretch and strengthen the body it brings us into natures rhythm. We feel more connected to ourselves and our environment. We can release tension in the body that prevents us from taking deep relaxing breaths. Yoga or mindful movement of the body trigger all the systems of the body to get online and support us in maintaining or returning us to our natural healthy state. When the body is calm and well, the mind is free to open to a new attitude or way of viewing our life circumstances.
