This is a very beautiful movement meditation that will assist in the relaxation of your body and mind. It is important for us to deeply relax on a daily basis. Stress which builds up can cause physical and mental imbalances and this short yoga set is a beautiful way to release tension in the mind and body.
Rhythmic, unforced, graceful, and free movement relaxes the entire body and releases the tensions we store in the body from our daily emotions.
1. Rhythmic Dance
Stand straight with arms completely relaxed. If it is available to you, close your eyes. Feel any tension in each part of the body and consciously let it go. Next, begin to sway and move every part of the body. Dance gracefully, feeling the easy movement of each body area. If there is gentle, rhythmic music of a high vibration available, it may be used as a background. Continue for 3 – 11 minutes or as long as you enjoy it.
2. Body Awareness
Immediately stand straight with the eyes still closed. With the hands, begin to lightly feel each area of the body. Continue for 3 – 5 minutes.
3. Hanging Relaxation
Lean forward with arms hanging completely relaxed. All the muscles of the body should be relaxed. Let the breath be normal. Continue for 3 – 11 minutes. To end, inhale and exhale deeply several times.
4. Backward Hang
Slowly lean backward with arms hanging loosely down. The breath is relaxed. Continue for 1 minute.
Completely relax on your back for 1 – 10 minutes.
