Compensating for all the extensions we have done today giving the back a break and slowly you go back Hands on the sides of the knees lengthen the cervicals pressing the mat with the hands climbs round, vertebrae by vertebrae until reaching the vertical The head is the last thing to reach the top observe the sensations at this moment open your eyes, you had them closed Let yourself fall To the right side pelvis touches the ground, the feet are very close just as you are now, do not modify bring the right hand back touching the floor push it to help you stretch the spine the arm has one action the other hand goes on the knee or on the thigh lengthen the back, inhale, exhale, turning to the right you will notice more limited twisting than others, so I invite you to open the chest doing a small extension, looking up or looking backwards breathing inhaling, exhaling returning to center Sit to the other side Feet very close now you can see them more clearly you carry the left hand back firm support, helping you to lengthen your back is not On the beach we are not supported there back aligned with an imaginary line that connects you with heaven and earth The other hand on the knee or on the thigh lengthens the intake of air exhales and turns Open your chest a little more in extension Back to the center bring the legs forward Both feet together hold them with the hands, hold their ankles and place The elbow of the forearm on the leg, be careful that they don't stay outside, this is very common

Try to follow the instructions what we want Don't reach with your head to your feet that's a classic what we want is to flex forward creating again Akasha lots and lots of space in our hips

And in our abdomen from there inhale lengthening exhaling bending with the back the flexion itself makes your elbows naturally push your legs downward And we stay there breathing you can close your eyes if you want to killing all that space between your belly, your chest, your face, your feet, your hips

inhale and exhale during all this class we have been also working with Svadhisthana the second chakra whose color is orange and is connected with fertility, with sensuality

Pleasure and the pleasures of life With emotions and creativity all of them lunar elements very slowly unravel, lift the trunk Close the legs with the help of the hands support the feet Let fall the trunk on them embrace them, support the cheeks with the forehead resting giving you a good hug right now go untie your hands, lift yourself up and lie down in Savasana for relaxation if you feel like putting on socks, a little blanket wherever you are to be more comfortable and not to lose heat lie on your back with your legs a little more than hip-width apart, letting your feet fall outward, adjusting them to fit your body

the position of your pelvis Stretch your arms to the sides leaving space at the sides, palms facing upward Lengthen the neck, adjust also the position of your head and close your eyes

Savasana is the most important posture of your practice so I encourage you not to skip it, stay here

Because it integrates All the experiences lived during this exploration every sensation, every posture, every stretch, every discomfort are now integrated little by little into your skin In your muscles, in your joints, in your bones, creating a new memory Beginning to transform your body Opening it to the mysteries of yoga inhale and exhale through the mouth if you feel like it feeling how the body gets heavier and heavier the legs fall, also the pelvis the back, the trunk, the arms are heavy Head very heavy but breathing is getting calmer and calmer soften your face, soften the thoughts allow yourself a deep rest do nothing no purpose, no intention, no expectation exhale as it comes naturally it will look like a sigh it may even be a yawn energy returns to your body again You can start activating it by wiggling your toes of the hands Moving the head from one side to the other as you wish If you need to do some free movement or some stretching allow it Let yourself fall to the right side completely, lying on your side

Open your eyes and let the light come in again

observe the space where you are And when you feel ready, ready with the help of your hands and your back very round and soft, sit up

find a comfortable sitting position, cross your legs or on your heels, whatever you prefer

lengthen the spine bring the hands to the chest again, close the eyes And I invite you to reconnect again with the intention that you have created for today, with that lunar intention observing how you started and how you are now fill yourself with gratitude be filled with compassion And thank yourself for dedicating this time to yourself
