Journey To Motherhood

Sit on your heels, spine long and hands resting on your thighs, palms down [A]. Inhale as you lift your hips and sweep your arms upward, bringing your hands together in prayer position while gazing up at them [B]. Exhale as you sweep your arms back down and lower your hips to sit on your heels, palms on thighs. Do 5 repetitions.


Body Benefit: This flowing posture opens the lower back and hips, relieving tension, aches and pains.
