This will be a first in a series of posts highlighting some of the poses from our twice-monthly Somatic Flow & Restore class at Moyo. This is your chance to try out poses using a minimal number of props. Always feel free to supplement the props with whatever makes you comfortable.
This is an absolutely wonderful practice because it is easily accessbile (you don't have to own a ton of props) and there is less set-up between poses (ease of mind). Make sure that you warm up your spine, moving it in all directions and find a breath that helps initiate the Relaxation Response (Three part, Equal Breath, Extending Exhalation - see breathing exercises at sidebar).
