Okay, and on to DAY 6 of the challenge!
Dolphin Pose is a variation of the infamous downward facing down pose in which the forearms rest flat on the floor. Since this takes the
weight of the body off the wrists, it's a good alternative for those with wrist pain. This pose is great for those of you who spend long hours at the computer. This is a challenging pose, so remember that you can go into child's pose (a simple resting position) at any time.
So many good
things happen in this pose, a lot of it in the chest, shoulders and arms. Energy zings around and around, up and down, front and back. Don't feel that you have to stay in it as long as the video. Be in it while you
can. Feel free to hit pause on the video, and do it at your own pace. Work up to the length if you need to, but love it while you're in it, it's working some powerful magic. Stress makes our shoulders rise, unconsciously trying to protect ourselves. Use this pose to bring those shoulders down, shoo away the stress, let it know it's no longer welcome in your shoulders, or anywhere else in your body. Acknowledge your stress, then send it on its way.
