Quamay welcomes us to the Mindfulness in Motion 10-Day Yoga Challenge. When we focus our minds into our bodies, we can unlock a new perspective within this amazing human experience. Throughout the next 10 days, we invite our attention into the structure and function of different regions of our body as a means of captivating our mind. In these short, simple, but deep practices, we move from our feet into the pelvis, through our low back and up into the neck and shoulders. At the end of this challenge, you will feel grounded, present, and inspired.
Welcome to Day 1 of your Challenge! Today, Quamay leads a playful class to ground our awareness in the feet, the foundation of the body. We take a few moments to feel different areas of the feet light up with effort, and create a stable and lifting foundation for all of our poses. We carry that awareness through a creative, warming sequence, feeling strong and relaxed in our flow. You will bring this sense of rootedness, stability, and grounding to the rest of your challenge.
In Day 2, we focus the mind on the muscles of the backs and fronts of the legs, which provide support to the hips. We create length and strength to these areas of the body through Pyramid, balance postures, and variations of Lizard, before exploring splits. After this fun class you will feel strong and uplifted.
In Day 3 of our challenge, we bring mindfulness to the muscles of the inner and outer legs, which in our modern sedentary lives often become shortened, leading to discomfort. This sequence flows through familiar standing poses and mobility work, offering relief and rebalancing to the muscles of the legs and hips. You will feel soft and stable.
